Covid: What to take into account when entering Canada?

If you are not resident, unless you meet specific criteria to qualify as fully vaccinated, you cannot enter Canada for optional reasons, such as:
spending time at a seasonal home or cottage, childcare for your relatives, a personal or casual visit, tourism, fishing, entertainment or leisure
Fully vaccinated foreign nationals may be allowed to enter Canada for optional travel starting on specific dates:
August 9, 2021: American citizens and permanent residents of the United States, who currently reside in the U.S., and who meet specific criteria to qualify as fully vaccinated
August 9, 2021: French citizens who currently reside in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, and who meet specific criteria to qualify as fully vaccinated
September 7,2021 (tentative): All other foreign nationals who meet specific criteria to qualify as fully vaccinated
Warning: Until the specific dates, foreign nationals who come to Canada for non-essential reasons will be turned away at the border. Find out if you can enter Canada >>


Worldwide situation. General considerations
Due to the advancement of vaccination worldwide, documentation and testing restrictions have been eliminated in many countries. In fact, in some countries, by presenting the complete vaccination certificate against Coronavirus, RT-PCR or antigen test results are no longer required, nor is a health affidavit form. In other cases, such as Mexico, some countries in Latin America and Europe, they do not require a vaccination certificate either.
However, we insist once again, that in the situation of constant changes, it is always important to ask and arrange details with the airline and, if necessary, with the Calgary international airport (YYC) as well as, in the case of international flights, with the embassy or consulate near the final destination, and also with the countries involved for connecting flights, if any.
