3 Night Hotel Quarantine Ends August 9

In order to fight the Covid pandemic and protect Canadians, earlier this year Canada implemented and health and safety rule that required unvaccinated air travellers to book a 3-night stay at a government-authorized hotel before their departure to Canada. Canada's government has announced the 3-night hotel quarantine at a government authorized hotel requirement will be eliminated for all travellers arriving by air as of 12:01 A.M. EDT on August 9.

the three-night government authorized hotel stay requirement will be eliminated for all travellers arriving by air as of 12:01 A.M. EDT on August 9. Fully vaccinated travellers who meet the requirements will be exempt from quarantine; however, all travellers must still provide a quarantine plan and be prepared to quarantine, in case it is determined at the border that they do not meet the necessary requirements.

Canada also announced that 5 more Canadian airports will resume accepting international flights on August 9:

  • Halifax Stanfield International Airport
  • Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport
  • Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport
  • Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport
  • Edmonton International Airport

In addition to eliminating the 3-night hotel quarantine requirement, effective August 9, Canada is ending other travel restrictions into the country:

  • Unvaccinated American children under the age of 12 and unvaccinated dependent children will be able to accompany a fully vaccinated parent, step-parent, or legal guardian and forgo the 14-day quarantine but must follow relevant public health guidelines in the region they’re visiting.
  • Effective September 7, other fully vaccinated foreign nationals can travel to Canada for discretionary purposes if the domestic COVID-19 situation continues to remain “favourable.”
  • All travellers will be required to upload proof of vaccination to the ArriveCAN app or website before they board their flight to Canada and carry their vaccine certificate with them to present to border officials.

If you need an essential traveller exemption or have questions about your eligibility to travel to Canada or the United States, contact Ackah Law for assistance.
