I am going to Alberta pretty soon and I need to
Figure out the Covid testing requirements.
Also heading back to Alaska for a month or so after that.
Anyone been their lately? Any tips?

I drove up thru Coutts into Alberta, from Maryland for last 2 weeks of November. Just needed a negative test 72hours before arrival. Get your firearm paperwork offline. Went smooth for me.

A buddy went up for a Sheep hunt in August, and they were required to be fully Vaxed, and tested. Is that not the case anymore? I’ve completely written off the socialist republic of Canada for that….

I know it’s terrible but I am going to bite the bullet and go.
I’ve been putting it off for several years.
I have the vaccine for Europe travel but it’s the
Testing.I can’t get a straight answer on 14 days or 72 hours and what test is approved or not.
LOL
I was in Seattle airport last month and the check in agents were grinding all the Canadian arrivals.

Back in September it was a PCR test within 72 hrs of your flight to Canada plus proof of vaccination. Then a rapid test within 72 hrs of arrival in the US.

Now I think a rapid test within 24 hrs for arrival back to US is the only change. I am heading back up in Feb for a goat hunt and have a rapid test that is done via a zoom call. It worked perfectly last time.

I went to BC last August and then to Alberta in September. Both times going in I just needed to show proof of vaccination (2 shots, no booster). Coming back to US I didn't have to show anything COVID related. Negative test was not required in both cases.

My rifle paperwork was good, but they did tell me that although I could drive through them, I wasn't allowed to stop in any of their National Parks as long as it was in my vehicle. That was a bit of a bummer because Jasper National Park looked absolutely stunning and I would have loved to be able to stop and take a few pics and explore it a little.

I was just there and did not need anything either direction. They did not ask for card and no test required. Flew into Calgary and out of Calgary.

So how could they prove you stopped in a national park?

The officers at the border don't prove it. They're just advising a traveller that it's illegal to visit the national parks with a firearm. Same rules as a resident and traveling through the parks. A lot of non residents are unfamiliar with the laws and could end up in trouble with police or parks officers. Because it's a temporary firearms permit, officers at the border will advise travellers of relevant rules and regulations about traveling with them.
