All COVID-19 Measures at the Canadian Border End on Oct. 1
Planning your next trip to Canada? The Canadian government announced that it will be terminating all COVID-19 measures at the border effective Saturday, October 1, 2022. In a news release, the government said the removal of border measures comes amid high vaccination rates and lower hospitalization and death rates in Canada.
This means that all travelers to Canada, regardless of citizenship, will no longer have to:
- Submit public health information through the ArriveCAN app or website;
- Provide proof of vaccination;
- Undergo pre- or on-arrival testing;
- Carry out COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation;
- Monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada;
- Undergo health checks for travel on air and rail; or
- Wear masks on planes and trains.
The measures also apply to cruise ships so passengers will no longer be required to take pre-board tests, be vaccinated, or use ArriveCAN. The government said guidelines will remain in place to protect passengers and crew, keeping in step with the United States. If you have any questions, contact Berardi Immigration Law today!
