Canada continues to ease entry quarantine restrictions. From August 9, fully vaccinated citizens and permanent residents of the United States may make discretionary (optional) trips to Canada. From September 7, 2021, provided that the domestic epidemiological situation remains favorable, the government intends to open the borders of Canada to all fully vaccinated travellers who have received a full course of vaccination with the Canadian government approved vaccine at least 14 days prior to entry and who meet specific entry requirements.
Mandatory 3-day quarantine at the hotel is cancelled for all travellers arriving by air after 12:01. EDT 9 August.
Also, vaccinated travelers to Canada do not have to undergo a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. But they still need to prepare a quarantine plan in case the border officer instructs them to self-isolate.
In addition, even vaccinated travelers must comply with other requirements and restrictions:
- pre-registration in the ArriveCan application, including registration of the vaccination certificate,
- passing the COVID test before departure to Canada,
- and mandatory wearing of a protective mask.
