Canada Opens It's Borders to US Travelers

Canada’s land border will see its first major change in over a year since being closed in March 2020. The Canadian Government has announced that on August 9 it will allow fully vaccinated US travelers to enter Canada for any reason and without having to quarantine. However, there are quite a few rules you must be aware of:

Who will be allowed to enter from the US?

To begin with, only the US citizens and residents who are currently living in the states so if a passenger does not have a US passport or proof of residence in the US they won’t be allowed in.

Fully vaccinated?

In Canada, this will mean that at least 14 days have passed since a passenger has received both doses of one of the four Canadian-approved vaccines. This currently includes:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech

  • AstraZeneca

  • Moderna

  • Johnson & Johnson

Prior to entry, Canada still requires a covid test performed 72 hours before the flight or entry. They’ll also need to submit all their information via the ArriveCAN system.

Airport Changes:

Currently, only four Canadian airports are receiving international passenger flights – CYUL/Montreal, CYYZ/Toronto, CYYC/Calgary, and CYVR/Vancouver. But this is also changing from August 9, the list will be expanded to include the following airports:

  • CYHZ/Halifax

  • CYQB/Quebec

  • CYOW/Ottawa

  • CYWG/Winnipeg

  • CYEG/Edmonton.
