Canada could allow fully vaccinated U.S. citizens to enter the country next month


In a call Thursday with Canada’s provincial and territorial prime ministers, Trudeau also said Canada could open up to fully vaccinated travelers to all countries in early September if the current vaccination trend continues.

United States and Canada they mutually agreed to close the border in March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic was just beginning.

Canada is out of the bounds of American travelers. Tourism, leisure and informal visits are prohibited. There are some exceptions for family members, foreign workers, and international students.

For travelers arriving there are quarantine measures and strict testing air i land.
Canada will provide more details on reopening plans early next week, according to reading of Trudeau’s Covid-19 briefing with prime ministers.

The prime ministers agreed to work “on a vaccination credential test” to ensure Canadians could “travel internationally with confidence,” the reading said.

Trudeau said Canada leads the G20 countries in vaccination rates, with approximately 80% of eligible Canadians vaccinated with their first dose and more than 50% fully vaccinated.

Trudeau said there were ongoing discussions with the U.S. about reopening the plans.

Canada this month relieved the mandatory two-week quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated nationals and residents arriving in the country after traveling abroad.
Last month, the The US extended Covid-19 restrictions on non-essential ground and ferry crossings with Canada and Mexico through July 21, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
