(Eagle News) — Fully vaccinated foreign nationals will be allowed to visit Canada beginning September 7.

Travelers will have to be asymptomatic and present proof they have been immunized with products that are accepted by the Canadian government.

Approved vaccinations include Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson). 

As well, visitors must take a COVID-19 molecular test no more than 72 hours before arrival.

Their information, which includes vaccine records and a quarantine plan, must be uploaded to Canada’s ArriveCAN app or website.

And they may be required to take a test on arrival if selected.

While Canada’s is welcoming visitors, it is advising its own citizens to stay home.

The government says international travel increases the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and spreading it to others.
