Canada's Borders re-opening to International Travellers

Canada to relax Quarantine Rules for Vaccinated Travellers


Canada has plans to amend the 14 travel quarantine for incomers to Canada. Canada currently require incoming travellers to quarantine for fourteen days, including a three day hotel quarantine for air travellers.

Word from the federal government suggest that Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents will no longer be required to quarantine for the full 14 day if they have received the second dose of their Covid Vaccination.

Health Minister Patty Hajdu shared that starting in July, the government is hoping to ease some restrictions in stages. Currently the relaxation is stated to only apply to Canadian Citizen and Permanent Residents, who must still have an isolation plan and take a Covid-19 test on arrival. However, this amendment may be extended to others depending on case counts.

While the Government of Canada’s official website currently states that there are no exemptions for vaccinated travellers, the Government is expect to make a statement on new plans in teh coming days.
