Canada extends border restrictions until at least September 30, continuing to ban unvaccinated foreigners

The Government of Canada announced on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, that it would be extending the current COVID-19 border restrictions until at least September 30.


The current measures in place prevent any unvaccinated foreigners from entering the country. In order for foreign travelers to enter Canada, they must provide proof of being fully vaccinated.

While unvaccinated Canadians and permanent residents will continue to have to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test and quarantine for 14 days upon entrance into Canada.

Earlier in June, the Federal government announced that it would be pausing its mandatory vaccination requirement for Canadian travelers. 

Prior to this, on October 30, 2021, the Trudeau government had announced that all Canadians boarding planes or trains would have to be fully vaccinated to travel within their own country or abroad.
