Am I exempt from COVID travel restrictions and testing requirements if I've been vaccinated?


My wife and I own a home in Florida and have been here since November. We have both been vaccinated and were wondering if this would exempt us from the new COVID travel restrictions and testing that have been introduced?

At this time, being vaccinated does not exempt you from any of the following travel restrictions or COVID testing requirements that have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented by the Canadian and U.S. governments:

Travelling to Canada

  • Pre-arrival COVID testing
  • COVID Testing upon arrival in Canada
  • Mandatory Hotel Quarantine Requirement upon arrival
  • 14 Day Quarantine Requirement upon arrival

Travelling to the United States

  • Pre-arrival COVID testing
  • Quarantine upon arrival (currently recommended by the CDC but expected to become mandatory soon)
