Are you fully vaccinated tourist? You can now travel to Canada

Tourists who are fully vaccinated as of September 7, 2021 can now travel to Canada. They need to have completed the full course of vaccination with an approved vaccine 14 days before entering Canada.

Travellers will need to have completed the full course of vaccination. They must also be vaccinated with a Canada-approved vaccine. Other vaccines that may be approved elsewhere in the world are currently not accepted.

In addition, travellers need to have received their last dosage at least 14 days before they travel to Canada.

You need to know this before travelling to Canada

Travellers coming to Canada are required to use the ArriveCAN mobile or web application where they will submit their personal and travel information.

They will need to show a pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test result, even if they are fully vaccinated. Travellers may also be selected at random to conduct a COVID-19 test upon arrival in Canada. They will also need to show proof of their vaccination, and must not have any symptoms of the virus.

In addition, travellers to Canada will be exempt from quarantine if they meet certain requirements. However, they will still be expected to prepare a quarantine plan, in case the border officer determines that they do not meet these requirements.

Unvaccinated individuals under 12 years old will be allowed to enter Canada without needing to quarantine if their parent or guardian is fully vaccinated and is accompanying them.

Foreign nationals who are not vaccinated are not allowed to enter Canada. Those who are allowed to enter Canada include temporary workers, international students, diplomats and other individuals who are traveling for an essential reason. These individuals are required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival if they are not fully vaccinated.
