Updated on December 1, 2021:
Canada now allows recreational travel for fully vaccinated foreign nationals who meet the requirements. British Columbia has now stepped into phase 3 of our provincial restart plan.
Further requirements announced November 30, 2021 requires all travellers arriving by air from departure points other than the United States to be tested upon arrival to quarantine while they await the results of their arrival test.
- Fully vaccinated foreign nationals who meet the requirements of a fully vaccinated traveller can come to Canada. Fully vaccinated travellers who are permitted to enter Canada will not be subject to further federal requirement to quarantine or take a COVID-19 test on day-8 after receiving results from their arrival test.
- To be considered fully vaccinated:
A traveller must have received the full series of a vaccine — or combination of vaccines — accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Currently, those vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson). Travellers can receive their vaccine in any country, and must provide documentation supporting their vaccination in English, French or with a certified translation.
- For these new measures to apply to them, fully vaccinated travellers must still meet all other mandatory requirements, including being asymptomatic and pre- and on-arrival testing.
Otherwise, all air travellers must comply with all testing and 14-day self quarantine requirements.
