Estimated Relief in Immigration from 5 July 2021

On July 5, fully vaccinated visitors who are authorized to enter Canada may take advantage of lowered public health precautions.

The current border and travel restrictions might not be reflected in this news release. For the most recent regulations to immigrate to Canada, consult COVID-19: Travel, Testing, and Borders.

Fully immunized visitors to Canada who arrives by land or air and meet certain requirements will not be subject to quarantine or day-8 testing starting on July 5, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. EDT.

Additionally, passengers arriving by air who are completely immunized will not be obliged to wait for the results of their on-arrival tests at a government-authorized accommodation (GAA).

Travellers arriving before 12:01 a.m. EDT on July 5th will not be qualified for the lowered public health measures; it is vital to note. The 14-day quarantine and day-8 test for travellers who have just returned to Canada must therefore be completed.

Who is permitted to immigrate to Canada and entry into Canada?

Only travellers who are currently qualified to visit Canada and have received all required vaccinations are affected by these changes.

This includes people who are qualified for entrance by the following Orders in Council as well as those who enter by right (Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and anyone enrolled under the Indian Act). Entry into Canada from the United States is prohibited, as is entry into Canada from any other nation save the United States.

Detailed requirements for fully immunized travellers

Travellers must meet the following criteria in order to benefit from the lowered public health measures: 

1. be admitted to Canada;

2. Complete your vaccinations: A traveller must have received the entire course of vaccination, or combination of vaccines, accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days before entering Canada in order to be deemed completely immunized. Currently, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen produce such vaccines (Johnson & Johnson).

3. Comply with all requirements in order to be eligible for the fully immunizedtraveler exemption, including presenting documentation of a positive pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test prior to boarding a plane or arriving at the land border and submitting the required information, including a digital proof of immunization in either English or French, in Arrive CAN.
