OTTAWA, ON, October 14, 2021 / PRNewswire / – About 12 October 2021, the United States announced that in November, they will begin allowing fully vaccinated travelers to Canada enter United States at land and sea entry points for discretionary reasons (non-essential reasons), such as tourism.
The Canada Border Services Agency would like to remind travelers that border measures remain in place for travelers entering or returning to the Canada and that they should educate themselves and understand their obligations as they prepare their travel plans.
Travelers should check if they are eligible to enter Canada and meet all entry requirements before going to the border.
Fully vaccinated travelers coming to Canada must complete the mandatory COVID-19 molecular test before arrival and submit their mandatory information, including their digital proof of vaccination in English or French using the free ArriveCAN app (app or website) within 72 hours before arriving at Canada. Antigenic tests, often called “rapid tests”, are not accepted. Fully vaccinated travelers who are eligible to enter Canada continue to be subject to mandatory random testing upon arrival.
For short trips, less than 72 hours, Canadian citizens, persons registered under the Indian Act, permanent residents and protected persons traveling to United States are allowed to take their pre-entry molecular test before departure Canada. If the test is older than 72 hours at the time of their return Canada, they will have to pass a new pre-entry molecular test in United States.
Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers who are eligible to enter Canada must continue to follow COVID-19 molecular testing requirements before arrival, upon arrival and on day 8, and quarantine for 14 days.
