Canada opens borders to foreigners
Citizens of other states who have completed vaccinations, including Ukraine, will be able to travel to Canada for any purpose starting September.
“With more vaccinations and fewer infections in Canada, we can safely begin to open borders. A gradual approach to lifting restrictions will allow our health authorities to monitor the COVID-19 situation both domestically and internationally” – said Minister of Health of Canada Patty Hajdu.
The government clarified that fully vaccinated foreign tourists will be able to enter Canada starting September 7. Prerequisite: the relevant negative PCR test for COVID-19, done no earlier than 3 days before entering the country.
