Fully vaccinated foreign nationals now allowed to enter Canada

Since 12:01 am EDT on September 7, 202, fully vaccinated foreign nationals are now eligible to enter Canada for discretionary (non-essential) reasons, such as tourism.

The Government of Canada specifies that these individuals must:

• be fully vaccinated: a traveller must have received, and show proof of, the full series of a vaccine – or combination of vaccines – accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Currently, those vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)

• have a valid pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test result taken no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flight or their arrival at the land border crossing, or a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days before departure to Canada. Antigen tests, often called “rapid tests,” are not accepted

• be asymptomatic

• submit their mandatory information via ArriveCAN (App or website), including proof of vaccination in English or French and a quarantine plan

• be admissible under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and

• take a test on arrival, if selected
