The Government of Canada continues to recommend that you avoid all non-essential travel outside Canada until further notice.
The Government of Canada continues to recommend that you avoid all non-essential travel outside Canada until further notice. However, beginning July 6, 2021, there will be exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada who meet specific conditions and are allowed to enter:
- Fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to quarantine or complete a day-8 test. In addition, fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air will not be required to stay at a government-authorized hotel to await their on-arrival test result.
- Fully vaccinated travellers must still meet the pre-entry and on-arrival testing requirements, be asymptomatic and must submit all required COVID-19 information electronically into ArriveCAN prior to travel to Canada, have a paper or digital copy of their proof of vaccination, and have a suitable quarantine plan.
- To be considered fully vaccinated, travellers must have received at least 14 days prior to entering Canada, the full series of a COVID-19 vaccine — or combination of vaccines —accepted by the Government of Canada. Travellers must provide proof of vaccination in English or French (or a certified translation).
There are no changes to Canada’s current border measures for travellers who are not fully vaccinated. They must continue to adhere to the current testing and federal 14-day quarantine requirements, and provide COVID-19-related information electronically through ArriveCAN before arriving in Canada. Not fully vaccinated air travellers must also book a three-night stay at a government-authorized hotel before their departure to Canada.
