Canada easing travel restrictions for U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents

Canada announced a significant relaxation of its COVID-19 travel restrictions on July 19, 2021, which will come into place over the next several weeks. The key changes will initially benefit fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents who reside in the U.S. and are coming to Canada for discretionary purposes (tourism or business visits), and will be followed by a relaxation of travel restrictions starting in September 2021 for travelers coming from elsewhere in the world. These changes are anticipated to come into effect on August 9, 2021, and only apply to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
