    Hopefully someone that was actually positive chimes in.

    I'm just curious is all since the Canada site is such a clusterfuck. I'm assuming the reason they say receipt is all you have to show is due to privacy laws that technically mean you don't have to show any medical paperwork to some minimum wage airport worker in Mexico.

    You need to show a positive test from 14 - 180 days prior or a negative test. They specifically look for your name, birthday, test result, test time and test type. At least my 3 flights back to Canada that is how it was done.

    This is not what I was asking about. I am specifically asking about the event of getting a positive test result IN Mexico.

    And yes I am aware of what they might be asking to see at the airport. But as this does not appear to be a requirement to show anyone according to the Canadian government, it left me curious as to what is actually stopping positive travellers from returning on their flight.

    I see someone mentioned they got their Mexican PCR results back same-day, is that the norm? If so, I'm assuming it's pretty safe to wait to get tested until the last day before flying out?

    There are different kinds of pcr tests. You can get rapid pcr tests that are ~30 minute results

    I had PCR results in Hawaii in 40 minutes.

    I’ve heard the Mexico results show up within a few seconds of payment

    Where did you go in Hawaii? I'm looking for a testing facility in Honolulu.

    Ok thanks anyway. I'll probably end up buying the self test kits. Has anyone had experience using those for their return to Canada?

    Just came back from the UK and had a few connections and some airports don't care about pcr tests but Paris analyzed my negative pcr test like it was a fake. Shitty airport with rude ass people

    CDG was like that before COVID, can only imagine how bad it is now

    I imagine YUL would be the same

    when are you planning to go? we still have our flights and hotel booked for mid Feb but leaning on cancelling it.
    we might just go to LA for 2-3 days instead

    LA, all off the hassle, half the appeal!

    Yeah, this would be the 3rd time we are rescheduling our Hawaii trip but we figured it would be easier and cheaper to find accommodation in the mainland than Hawaii.
    Do a 3-4 days trip, land there get LAMP/NAAT tested the next day then fly back in 2 days we would have a lower chance of testing postive.
    We considered a short trip to PV too but it's a covid hotspot right now.

    Note: we could also do a really short Hawaii trip but feels exhausting doing 6 hours flight for 3-4 nights. It's a possibility though

    The government site says you need actual lab paper work. So I don't see how a self test kit would help. I was hoping this is something we could get away with too.

    Providing proof of your result
    When you arrive at the border, you must present an accepted negative molecular test result (paper or electronic proof) or proof of a previous positive molecular test result taken between 15 and 180 days (starting January 15, 2022, between 11 and 180 days ago) that includes:

    traveller name and date of birth
    name and civic address of the laboratory/clinic/facility that administered the test
    the date on which the test was taken
    the type of test taken
    the test result
    Keep proof of your test results with you for the 14-day period that begins on the day you enter Canada.

    the RT-LAMP from here is what Im considering buying instead of having to search for a lab that does PCR, NAAT or LAMP while outside of Canada.

    says it is approved for re-entry

    I don't know if that will work. Its approved for re-entry but I think they mean the testing at the airport once you've arrived. From reading it I don't think you can do it in mexico via video chat and it count. Unless I'm misreading

    It's probably cheaper, but it still needs to be done by a lab so you can have official results.

    I know a few people who have done the video chat / self administered test from Air Canada in order to return from Hawaii. You take the test yourself, while in your hotel room before you fly home. It’s approved and no need to get results from a lab.
    I like neat cars.

    Going to stay at Barcelo Maya Palace next week with 3 kids, wondering if life jackets are available at resort? Are they complementary or rental? Or should we bring our own?

    Flying on WestJet for a WestJet vacation. Are any checked bags included in the package price?

    Any thoughts appreciated.
