Fully vaccinated foreign travellers landing back at Pearson Airport in Mississauga

Travel restrictions under COVID-19 are continuing to loosen, with more travellers to be allowed entry into the country starting this week.

Beginning Tuesday, September 7, all foreign nationals who are fully vaccinated (with approved COVID-19 vaccines) may be eligible to enter Canada for non-essential travel, according to the Canada Border Services Agency.

Some restrictions still apply — travellers must be asymptomatic and have proof of a valid pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test.

Travellers may also be required to take a test upon arrival.

At this time, approved COVID-19 vaccines include the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, although the list of accepted vaccines may expand in the future.

Canada began welcoming fully vaccinated Americans back across the border in early August.

More information on who is allowed to enter the country is available at the federal government’s website.
