The Government of Canada announced that starting July 5, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. EDT, all fully-vaccinated travellers (Canadians, Permanent Residents, foreign nationals travelling for essential purposes) will be exempted from the federal requirement to quarantine or take a COVID-19 test on Day 8 after their arrival. In addition, fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air will not be required to stay at a government-authorized hotel.

Travellers must provide proof of their vaccinations electronically through the Government of Canada’s ArriveCAN application and will still need to meet all other mandatory requirements such as pre- and on-arrival COVID-19 testing.

To be considered fully vaccinated, a traveller must have received the full-series or a combination of the following vaccinations:

  • AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD
  • Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)
  • Moderna
  • Pfizer

For travellers who are not fully vaccinated, there are no changes in the current border restrictions.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.
