Some Unvaxxed Travellers From The US Are Now Eligible To Enter Canada ...

From August 9, American citizens and permanent residents who've been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are permitted to enter Canada for discretionary purposes, including travel, tourism and shopping.

There are some exceptions to this though, allowing partially vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers from some U.S. regions to enter Canada without quarantining.

Per a Government of Canada notice, habitual residents of Hyder (Alaska), Northwest Angle (Minnesota) or Point Roberts (Washington) are now eligible to enter the country if they're a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Because of the Canada-U.S. border placement, these communities are cut off from the rest of the United States.

Residents of these communities are permitted to "carry out everyday functions and access goods and services within their neighbouring Canadian communities." However, they must remain in those regions while in Canada.

"Other than the changes for habitual residents of Hyder (Alaska), Northwest Angle (Minnesota) or Point Roberts (Washington), there are no changes to testing and quarantine requirements for other travellers who are not fully vaccinated," reads a government notice.

As of the same day, fully vaccinated French citizens residing in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon have been given the go-ahead to visit Canada for non-essential purposes.
