    11. CDC drops Canada to Level 2

    The news article released on this, is linked below.


    United States officials have showed no signs of easing travel restrictions for Canadians, who are barred from entering the U.S. at land borders despite Canada loosening its entry rules for fully vaccinated Americans.


    Nonetheless, the U.S. State Department has gone ahead and lowered the COVID-19 travel advisory for Canada to "Level 2,” reports revealed on Tuesday (Aug 10).

    10. Canada Reopens Border to Vaccinated Americans

    10. Canada Reopens Border to Vaccinated Americans

    To read full news article, visit the links below.


    Starting Aug. 9, fully vaccinated citizens and permanent residents of the United States will, for the first time in 17 months, be permitted to enter Canada for non-essential travel and skip quarantine.


    Eligible visitors must live in the U.S. and be fully vaccinated, with a Health Canada-approved vaccine, for at least 14 days. 


    Americans – entering Canada by both land and air – must also show proof of a negative 72-hour molecular COVID-19 test and use the ArriveCAN app, or this online web portal, to upload their vaccination documents.


    Those who have recovered from COVID-19, and are eligible to enter Canada, will be allowed to show proof of a positive molecular test taken between 14 and 90 days prior to entering.


    Post-arrival COVID-19 tests will still be administered. However, they will be issued on random basis only.


    The easing of border rules, part of a phased reopening strategy laid out by the Canadian government, is set to provide some much-needed relief for local tourism businesses that saw staggering declines in customer traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    9. Canadian Travels News at Canadian Borders

    9. Canadian Travels News at Canadian Borders

    Listen to the latest Canadian Travel News and expect long lineups at Canadian Border services. According to a recent article published online, Canada’s travel reopening plans may face a roadblock after nearly 9,000 Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) workers, on Wednesday (Aug. 4), announced that preparations are underway to begin job action this Friday (Aug. 6).


     


    Canada travel restrictions may pose a lengthy and long wait for many Canadians eager to travel. If an agreement is not reached with the Canadian government by Friday, expect to wait in long lineups. Give yourself extra time crossing the border by land, at the airport, and even postal services.
