Do you live in the U.S.A. ?

GOOD NEWS !

Fully vaccinated residents of the United States no longer have to take a pre-arrival COVID-19 test to enter Canada. And there is no quarantine required.

Being fully vaccinated means that you have had at least two Covid vaccinations

There are now only 2 things you need to do BEFORE you come to the border:

1) Get at least two COVID vaccinations.

2) Now register with ArriveCan.
    Then enter your information into ArriveCan
    within 72 hours before your arrival
    at the Canadian border.


Already have an ArriveCan account? Sign in here.

BY THE WAY, you can get a free ArriveCan App from your Cell Phone's App Store.

A passport is not specifically required but Canada requires that you carry some proof of your citizenship that includes photo identification such as a passport or birth certificate, or a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, or a certificate of North American Native status. Children under 16 need to present proof of U.S. citizenship such as their birth certificate when entering Canada with their parents.

You can get a passport application at many post offices, clerks of court, public libraries and other state, county, township, and municipal offices. Click here to look up your nearest location. If your passport has not arrived in time for your trip, you can take along your copy of your passport application and two pieces of I.D. (e.g. driver's license and birth certificate). That will suffice to get you through the border.

Use of credit cards
If you plan to use a credit card be sure to call the bank who issued your card and tell them that you will be going to Canada. Most banks now decline the transactions if a card is suddenly used outside the U.S.A. without notice from the owner.
