If you do not have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and require an assessment or documentation for travel outside of Canada, please visit the Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) Travel/Vaccination Clinic or a primary care provider.
VCH COVID-19 assessment centres cannot provide assessment, testing or other documentation for travel. COVID-19 testing is not recommended for individuals without symptoms.
A primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner) can offer a COVID-19 clearance letter. Please visit your primary care provider or walk-in clinic.
The travel clinic will be providing consultations with a physician for those requiring COVID-19 clearance for travel. COVID-19 tests will not be conducted, but a letter from the physician will be provided stating you have been medically cleared to travel. Appointments are required and standard visit fees will apply.

If you travel outside of Canada, you are required by law to self-isolate for 14 days and complete a self-isolation plan. Self-isolation plans must be reviewed by provincial government officials before travellers can return home.
The Public Health Agency of Canada is advising travellers to avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada. If you have cold, influenza or COVID-19 symptoms, even mild ones, staying at home is the best way to prevent the spread of contagious respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. Follow advice from your health-care provider, use the COVID-19 self-assessment tool at bc.thrive.health or call 8-1-1. If your symptoms worsen and, if indicated, get tested at your local COVID-19 collection centre.
