On September 3, 2021, the Government of Canada reconfirmed it will re-open Canadian borders to fully vaccinated international travellers on September 7, 2021. Fully vaccinated foreign nationals will be able to enter Canada for non-essential reasons such as tourism as long as they meet entry requirements, including:
- Show proof of having been fully vaccinated at least 14 days before entering Canada
- Have a valid pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test taken no more than 72 hours before their flight (or arrival at a land border crossing). Antigen “rapid” tests are not accepted.
- Be asymptomatic
- Submit all mandatory information via ArriveCAN
- Take a test on arrival, if selected
