Canada to allow fully vaccinated American leisure travellers on Aug. 9 | FULL

Global News published this video item, entitled “Canada to allow fully vaccinated American leisure travellers on Aug. 9 | FULL” – below is their description.

American citizens and permanent residents who want to come to Canada for non-essential reasons and are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to do so starting on Aug. 9. Fully vaccinated travellers from other countries will also be allowed to come as of Sept. 7.

Federal officials announced the policy change following weeks of pressure by American lawmakers and industry lobby groups, as well as from communities along the Canada-U.S. border who have been hurting economically since fears of the virus prompted policymakers to shut the border in March 2020.

American travellers who are fully vaccinated will be able to come to Canada for discretionary travel without needing to quarantine upon arrival, and the government-approved hotel quarantine program will also be axed on that date. The same will apply to global travellers once they are allowed to travel into Canada.

Both will still have to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular test before arrival. But post-arrival, those fully vaccinated travellers will not need to do a post-arrival test as a matter of routine. The exemption will be those who are randomly selected for a post-arrival test.

American travellers and those other countries will have to submit their proof of vaccination through the ArriveCan app — the same rule in place for returning Canadian travellers since last month.
