Fully vaccinated Canadians will soon be able to take a short trip south of the border without having to get tested for COVID-19.

As of November 30th, people who have both doses and who are returning home from the United States after trips of 72 hours or shorter won’t have to show proof of a negative molecular test.

Children under 12 and people with medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine are also covered under the new rules.

Fully vaccinated Canadians returning from trips longer than 72 hours will still have to show proof of a negative molecular COVID-19 test when they get back.

The list of acceptable vaccines travelers may have when entering Canada will also be expanded come the end of the month.
