Canadians and permanent residents who are fully vaccinated are now able to enter the country without having to quarantine — provided they have proof of inoculation and have submitted a negative COVID-19 test.

This is the first phase of loosening the Canada-U.S. border restrictions that have been in place since March 2020.

In order to skip quarantine, travellers must:

(1) Be fully vaccinated with one of the approved Health Canada shots: Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

(2) Have received the last COVID-19 dose at least 14 days before coming to the border.

(3) Submit a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours before coming to the border.

(4) Upload the vaccine certificate and COVID-19 test information on the updated ArriveCAN app.

(5) Take and pass a COVID-19 test upon arrival (you are allowed to go home and wait for the results).
