Canada’s Travel Restrictions Will Officially Stay In Place Until At Least November 21

Canada's existing travel restrictions and entry requirements will remain in effect for another nine weeks, Health Canada has confirmed.

In a notice shared on Sunday, September 19, the government agency revealed that the country's current border measures will stay the same until November 21 at the earliest.

"As of September 7, 2021, fully vaccinated travellers from any country can enter Canada for discretionary reasons, if they meet specific requirements," the federal agency explained.

Fully vaccinated travellers must continue to show proof that they've received the full course of a Health Canada–approved vaccine at least 14 days prior to arriving in the country.

Anybody entering Canada must continue to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken in the 72 hours before arrival in Canada, or a positive test taken between 14 and 180 days before arrival.

Unvaccinated or partially-vaccinated travellers are still subject to quarantine and COVID-19 testing pre-arrival, on day one and on day eight.

Everybody who enters Canada must submit their details and all required COVID-19 documentation electronically via the ArriveCAN app.

Further details about which — if any — of these COVID-19 travel measures may be dropped from November 21 onwards are yet to be revealed.
