Here Are The COVID-19 Vaccines That Canada Has Approved For Incoming Travellers

International travellers need to have received Canada-approved COVID-19 vaccines.

Canada announced an update to its international travel restrictions on Monday, July 19.

As of August 9, American citizens and permanent residents who are fully vaccinated will be able to enter Canada for non-essential reasons. Come September 7, this will also be the case for people from other countries outside of North America.

In order for travellers to enter Canada, they must prove that they are fully vaccinated with a full series of a single vaccine type or a combination of vaccines that have been approved by the Government of Canada.

According to the government, the approved COVID-19 vaccines are those "manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)."

While the vaccines are allowed to have been administered in any country, the proof of vaccination must be in English or French or there must be a certified vaccination attached with the original. Vaccination records must be provided through the ArriveCAN app.
