Canada will reopen to fully vaccinated Americans on Aug. 9—the vaccination must be complete 14 days prior to entry.
Fully vaccinated travelers will not have to quarantine upon arrival in Canada. All travelers, however, must still provide a quarantine plan and be prepared to quarantine, in case it is determined at the border that they do not meet the necessary requirements. All travelers, regardless of vaccination status, will still require a pre-entry COVID-19 molecular test result.
Effective Aug. 9, 2021, international flights carrying passengers will be permitted to land at the following five additional Canadian airports: Halifax Stanfield International Airport; Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport; Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport; Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport; and Edmonton International Airport.
As a next step, on Sept. 7, “provided that the domestic epidemiologic situation remains favorable,” Canada intends to open its borders to any fully vaccinated travelers who have completed the full course of vaccination with a Government of Canada-accepted vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Canada and who meet specific entry requirements.
All travelers must use ArriveCAN (app or web portal) to submit their travel information.
