Some international travel restrictions easing July 5 for fully vaccinated people with proof


Fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents will be able to enter Canada and not need to quarantine starting July 5, the federal government announced today.
The news comes as many Canadian provinces have hit key vaccination targets — with more than 75 per cent of eligible Canadians receiving at least one dose, and over 20 per cent receiving two.
Even so, Canadians and permanent residents who are fully vaccinated won’t be able to simply walk through customs.
According to officials speaking during a technical briefing on background, those entering will need to show documents proving they received doses of the vaccines approved in Canada at least 14 days prior to entering the country.
The new rules kick in July 5 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Health Minister Patty Hajdu said she’s still consulting with provinces about the next phase of easing travel restrictions.
Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino also announced that individuals approved for permanent residence may travel to Canada as of June 21. Previously, foreign nationals who held a valid confirmation of permanent residence issued on or before March 18, 2020, were exempt from Canada’s travel restrictions.
