Canadian officials announced on July 19 that it plans to reopen the U.S. Canada border on August 9, 2021. This border has been closed 16 months since the pandemic began. Starting on August 9, American citizens and permanent residents who are currently residing in the U.S. and have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days prior to travel can enter Canada for non-essential travel.
To enter Canada, travelers must use the government’s ArriveCAN “vaccine passport” app, which allows travelers to upload passport information as well as Covid-19 vaccination records and PCR test results. Americans who have received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine must upload a photo of their vaccination record or enter the information manually. They will also be required to upload a negative result from a PCR Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of flight departure or arrival at a land crossing.
At this time, the United States have not accounted when it will allow Canadians to travel across the land border for nonessential travel. It’s also not been announced when U.S. residents can visit Canada. Currently, the border is only open for essential travel, for more information, please click here.
