It has already been more than a year since the outbreak of COVID-19, more and more countries have already started developing safety measures upon the discovery of vaccines and Canada is one of the first countries that opened its borders to international students. Now, the Government of Canada is announcing the details of the first phase of its approach to easing border measures for travellers entering Canada. As of today, July 5, 2021, fully vaccinated travellers of vaccines manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca / COVISHIELD, and Janssen will no longer need to quarantine or be required to stay at a government-authorized hotel in Canada.
For those new measures to apply, fully vaccinated travellers must still meet all other mandatory requirements such as:
- Pre- and on-arrival testing
- Fully vaccinated travellers must also be asymptomatic, have a paper or digital copy of their vaccination documentation, and provide COVID-19- related information electronically through ArriveCAN prior to arrival in Canada.
The Government of Canada in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to prioritize health and safety of Canadians.
If you’re planning to travel in Canada soon, better keep yourself protected for lesser hassle once you reach the borders!
