Beginning September fully vaccinated can arrive at Mississauga’s Pearson Airport

Fully vaccinated international travellers will be allowed to fly into Mississauga’s Pearson Airport and other Canadian airports beginning Sept. 7.

Ottawa also today announced that fully vaccinated American travellers will be able to cross into Canada beginning Aug. 9.

All will be allowed to do so without having to quarantine.

However, the flight ban from India will remain in place for another month.

While Canada will accept Americans, the U.S. has not yet announced a plan for Canadians entering into their country for non-essential travel.

For air travelers arriving into Canada who are fully vaccinated, a few restrictions will apply.

Chiefly, the program can be cancelled if Canadian COVID-19 cases begin to rise or if the vaccination rates begin to drop off.

As well, fully vaccinated travellers must have had a shot with a Health Canada approved vaccine at least 14 days prior to arriving in the country.

Further, the fully vaccinated must provide a back-up quarantine plan and provide proof of vaccination that can be uploaded to the ArriveCAN app.

Those who are not fully vaccinated will not be allowed into the country unless they can prove the travel is essential. If so, they must quarantine for 14 days.
