On Monday, July 19, 2021, the Canadian government announced the soft reopening of the country’s borders.
Starting August 9, fully vaccinated US travelers and permanent residents of the United States will be allowed entry into Canada. The Canadian border has been closed to nonessential travel since March 2020, a period of 16 months.
People from the US will be able to travel to Canada without the need to quarantine upon arrival if they have received the full course of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to traveling. The Canadian government will only accept those who have received the vaccines manufactured by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson.
