O! Canada! Vaccinated Travelers Can Skate Right Into the Country
Beginning April 1rst, visitors are welcome without a pre-covid test.
The travel industry welcomed the announcement yesterday by Canadian officials that fully vaccinated travelers would no longer need a Covid test before entry.
Officials were clear that all travelers must be vaccinated to enter, saying despite lifting the pre-entry test requirement, the requirement to be fully vaccinated will remain.
Travelers must have received a government-approved COVID-19 vaccine to board federally-regulated air, rail, and marine transportation.'
In addition, travelers still have to use the ArriveCAN app to enter their proof of vaccination and other required information before arriving in Canada.
According to the government, travelers who arrive without completing their ArriveCAN submission may have to test on arrival and quarantine for 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status.
