Canada Borders Open to Fully Vaccinated USA Citizens August 9th
The federal government of Canada announced Monday, July 19th it will allow fully vaccinated American travelers into the country beginning August 9, and extend that easing of border measures to other foreign nationals almost a month later.
Government officials said that as of 12:01 a.m. EDT on Aug. 9, Americans citizens and permanent residents of the U.S. will be able to travel to Canada for discretionary purposes if they’ve received a full course of one of the four COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada at least 14 days prior to arrival.
“This preliminary step allows for the Government of Canada to fully operationalize the adjusted border measures ahead of September 7, 2021, and recognizes the many close ties between Canadians and Americans,” a press release states.
