Advisories: COVID-19 and more

Updated entry requirements for Canada

Effective July 5, 2021 at 00:01 EST, any guests eligible to enter Canada who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to isolate at government approved accommodations upon arrival and will be exempt from the 14-day self-isolation period.

Before boarding their flight, fully vaccinated guests are required to provide information related to their COVID-19 vaccination and evidence of COVID-19 vaccination to the Government of Canada via ArriveCAN. Any person who fails to comply with this requirement may be liable to a fine if this requirement applies to them.

All guests entering Canada will still require pre-departure and on-arrival testing. Read full details
