Canada allows non-essential travel for fully vaccinated Americans

Date:

The Canadian government on August 9 lifted a ban on fully vaccinated Americans who want to cross the border for non-essential travel into the country.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents who currently reside in the United States must submit a “Proof of Vaccination” document in English or French and a negative . have to provide CCP (Communist Party of China) Virus test result that is not older than 72 hours or a previous positive test result that was taken between 14 and 180 days from departure to the border crossing, public health agency said.

US travelers are also required to be fully vaccinated. Government approved COVID-19 vaccine For at least 14 days prior to travel.

Canada regards “fully immunized” as receiving the full range of a COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved by the government. Currently, essential vaccines are manufactured in the country by Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/Covishield and Johnson & Johnson.

Finally, passengers also need to use arrivacan app or online web portal to upload their vaccination and test result details.

In a statement issued on July 19, officials said that effective August 9, international passenger flights would be allowed to land at nine Canadian airports:

  • Edmonton International Airport
  • Montreal-Trudeau International Airport
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport
  • Calgary International Airport
  • Vancouver International Airport
  • Halifax Stanfield International Airport
  • Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport
  • Ottawa McDonald-Cartier International Airport
  • Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport

Americans who are fully vaccinated can enter Canada from multiple land border crossings.

While travelers do have to register, the Canada Border Services Agency would not say how many people they expect to enter Canada for reopening. But travelers should plan for the potential for additional processing time at the border.

“CBSA will not compromise the health and safety of Canadians for border wait times,” agency spokeswoman Rebecca Purdy said in a statement.

As for returning to the United States from Canada, Jason Givens, a spokesman for US Customs and Border Protection, said there is no need to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

“CBP officials are processing essential travel during the pandemic and are prepared and able to process US citizens and permanent residents returning from Canada,” Givens told The Associated Press by email.

US officials have announced they will extend its closure to all Canadians with non-essential travel until at least August 21, which also applies to the Mexican border. The US-Canada border was closed to all non-essential travel from March 2020.
