IMPORTANT TRAVEL UPDATE
The Government of Canada is taking a responsible, precautionary approach at the border by continually monitoring available data and scientific evidence to protect the health and safety of its citizens. The Government of Canada announced the details of the first phase of its approach to easing border measures for travellers entering Canada. These cautious adjustments are now possible because of the successes of the vaccine roll out in Canada and Canadians following public health measures.
Starting from July 5, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EDT, fully vaccinated travellers who are permitted to enter Canada will not be subject to the federal requirement to quarantine or take a COVID-19 test on day-8. In addition, fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air will not be required to stay at a government-authorized hotel.
While travelling you must have received the full series of a vaccine — or combination of vaccines — accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Currently, those vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson).
Some of the quick facts you should know about are:
- Plan in advance to ensure all mandatory requirements are met is crucial.
- Check and follow both the federal and any provincial or territorial restrictions and requirements before travelling.
- The existing international flight restrictions that funnel scheduled international commercial passenger flights into four Canadian airports will be maintained in this first phase of re-opening.
The Government of Canada will continue to consider easing measures at the borders with more vaccination roll out and ensuring the health and safety of the community.
