Crossing the Border: How to Use the ArriveCAN App

Berardi Immigration Law’s Tiffany McKenzie has a quick step-by-step on how to use the ArriveCAN app to enter Canada. Vaccinated American tourists can travel north as of Aug. 9, but there’s lots to know before you go.

The Canadian government will start to allow entry to American citizens or permanent residents who can prove they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with jabs from Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca-Oxford. Vaccinated Americans will need to do two important things before leaving for Canada:

  1. Take one pre-departure COVID-19 test from a U.S.-based provider, and
  2. Fill out a travel questionnaire on Canada’s ArriveCAN app.

ArriveCAN is available on iOS and Android devices. If you have any questions about using the ArriveCAN app to enter Canada, please contact Berardi Immigration Law today.
