EU Vaccinated Tourists | Can Travel To Canada For Tourism
OTTAWA: The Government of Canada has announced that now all European tourists who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 disease can travel to Canada for travel and tourism purposes.
To be permitted to enter the country, EU travellers must prove that they have received one of the vaccine doses accepted as valid proof of immunity in Canada and are obliged to present a negative COVID-19 test result taken before arrival, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
“Effective September 7, foreign nationals who qualify for the fully vaccinated traveller exemption can enter Canada for discretionary travel,” a statement of the Canadian Government reads.
Consequently, in order to be eligible to enter the Canadian territory, travellers from the EU must provide proof that they have been vaccinated with one of the accepted COVID-19 vaccines listed below:
It has been emphasised that those vaccinated with combined vaccine doses are also eligible to enter Canada, given that both doses are among the ones listed above.
In addition, for travellers to be considered fully immunised, the vaccination certificate should indicate that 14 days have passed since the last vaccine dose was administered.
As for the vaccination certificate, the Canadian Government has highlighted that the document must only be in English or French and must be uploaded digitally in ArriveCAN. Therefore, travellers from the EU who do not hold a vaccination certificate in one of these two languages should make a certified translation of their document and then upload it into ArriveCAN.
“At this time, there are no exemptions from testing or quarantine for travellers who haven’t received the full series of a vaccine or a combination of vaccines accepted by the Government of Canada,” the Government added.
