Canada will open its borders to fully vaccinated Americans next month after a nearly 17-month closure.
The move to ease border restrictions comes after significant gains in the country’s vaccination rate and a steady drop in Covid-19 cases.
If the virus progress continues, Canada will welcome all fully vaccinated international travellers by 7 September.
All travellers will need to present a negative Covid-19 test before entry.
The changes for American travellers and US permanent residents will go into place on 9 August.
The Canadian government first shut its borders in March 2020, barring entry to all non-essential foreign travellers with few exceptions.
