Canada Opened to Vaccinated US Citizens on August 9th

TORONTO (AP) — Canada announced it will begin letting fully vaccinated U.S. citizens into Canada on Aug.9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept. 7.

Officials said the 14-day quarantine requirement will be waived as of Aug. 9 for eligible travelers who are currently residing in the United States and are at least two weeks beyond their full vaccination dosage.

Vaccinated travelers still must provide a negative Covid-19 test taken prior to arrival, but fully vaccinated travelers will not need to be tested again after arrival unless they are randomly selected to take a test as part of a new border testing surveillance program at both airports and land borders. Keep in mind that testing is required to return to the US. Travelers will need to submit their travel information to the arriveCAN app or web portal and present a quarantine plan in case it is needed.

Canada will allow international flights starting Aug. 9, to land at five additional airports: Halifax, Québec City, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Edmonton. Currently, international flights are allowed to land only at four Canadian airports: Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
