While for US tourists, the opening will be on August 9, for the rest, the border will reopen from September 7
Thus, August 9 will mark 506 days since the last time a tourist crossed a border crossing between the United States and Canada. From that date onwards, Americans who wish to come to the country for recreational purposes will again be allowed to enter the country by land.
For tourists from the rest of the world, the border area will reopen on September 7. The requirement, in all cases, is to have the full COVID-19 vaccination regimen and submit a negative test.
Meanwhile, the US land borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed, at least until August 21.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressed, “I think every country should have its own border policies. We’ve worked with the United States to keep you informed and make sure our options align where possible, but you’ll see our countries take different approaches during the onset of the pandemic.”
With the land borders reopening, five other airports that had suspended their international flights, including the one serving the country’s capital, Ottawa, have again operated outbound routes to Canada.
Thus, in order to serve the greater influx of international tourists, the main air terminal clearly divided entry lines between vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers. However, this measure was quickly withdrawn.
