An update on Canada’s border restrictions. (Spoiler: they’re easing.)

We’ve been posting updates to Canada’s travel restrictions that were implemented to stop the spread of COVID-19. This week, the Government of Canada announced a timeline for loosening rules and allowing non-essential travel to resume across the border.

Included in the announcement:

  • Starting August 9, fully-vaccinated American citizens and permanent residents will be allowed into Canada for non-essential travel,
  • Starting September 7 (if Canada’s epidemiologic situation remains favourable), fully-vaccinated international travellers who meet specific entry requirements will be allowed into Canada,
  • Beginning August 9, fully-vaccinated travellers who meet the requirements will be exempt from quarantine, although a quarantine plan will still be required for certain circumstances, and
  • With only a few exceptions, all travellers must submit their travel information via the ArriveCAN app for web portal.

Full details – including a list of Canadian airports accepting international flights – can be found here. And be sure to follow our blog and Twitter feed for any relevant updates.
