Don’t be surprised if you start seeing United States license plates once again while you’re out on the roads. As of 12:01 am on Monday morning, United States citizens can once again enter Canada. This is the first time they have been able to cross the border since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020.
However, there is a catch. U.S. citizens must show proof that they are fully vaccinated in order to enter Canada. Proof of vaccination must be submitted to the federal government’s ArriveCAN platform within the 72-hour period prior to crossing the border. If travelers can prove they have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days, they will be exempt from having to quarantine. For more information on ArriveCAN, click here.
There are some exceptions to this rule. For example, children under the age of 12 who are with a fully vaccinated parent or guardian will also be allowed to cross the border. People with health conditions that prevent them from currently receiving a vaccine may also be eligible for a modified quarantine.
As of now, the United States has not opened up its border to fully vaccinated Canadian citizens.
