Border Crossing Information

MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED & BRING PROOF

Starting April 1, 2022, pre-entry tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada by land, air or water. To be eligible to enter Canada, American citizens and permanent residents must be fully vaccinated and have received the full series of a vaccine – or combination of vaccines – recognized by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Currently, the recognized vaccines are those manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson). Travellers can receive their vaccine in any country.

Must have a paper or digital copy of your vaccination documentation along with the original to show a government official on request.

American travelers and those other countries will have to submit their proof of vaccination through the ArriveCan App — Click here to download or WEB PORTAL Click here to download.  You’ll need to submit your information within 72 hours before your arrival in Canada.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT A COVID-19 TEST UPON ARRIVAL

You do not need to be tested upon arrival, but there will be a random testing program in place at the border. Therefore, if you are randomly selected you will be subject to a COVID-19 test.

BRINGING UNVACCINATED CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12 YEARS

Unvaccinated children (12 years and younger) of fully vaccinated adult travelers will also be exempt from doing a 14-day quarantine upon arrival.  These children must follow strict public health measures. This means they can move around with their parents. Unvaccinated children must also be included in submitting information electronically through ArriveCAN and all testing requirements.
