Canadian Border Now Open! Cross-Border Travel Requirements for U.S. GuestsJuly 22, 2021 | 241 Views
Dear Valued Guests, Partners and Friends of The Club,
We have very positive news to share! The Government of Canada announced it will allow fully vaccinated Americans to visit Canada beginning on August 9th, 2021.
We are thrilled to welcome back our US guests to the northern shores of Haida Gwaii in a few short weeks. Below is important information regarding cross-border travel requirements for this season.
PROOF OF VACCINATION:
You must be FULLY VACCINATED, with a Government of Canada approved vaccine, with your second shot taken at least 14 days before arrival to be allowed into Canada.
FULLY VACCINATED TRAVELERS MUST:
- Provide proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival
- Be asymptomatic
- Submit COVID-19 related information electronically through ArriveCAN prior to your arrival in Canada (Must be submitted within 72 hours before arrival)
- Have a paper or digital copy of their vaccination documentation
TRAVEL BACK TO THE USA:
Before returning to the U.S., all air travelers must show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours of boarding their plane. This rule includes U.S. citizens and everyone who has already been vaccinated.
We have set up post trip COVID-19 testing with our partners Whitecap Medical, who will guarantee our guest’s test results in only 12 hours. The cost is $250 CAD per test and can be taken immediately upon return to Vancouver allowing guests to travel back to their destination as early as the following morning.
We are finalizing details with how registration for these tests will work for our guests and will provide an update in the coming days.
WCFC COVID SAFETY PLAN:
Our lodges have stringent COVID-19 health and safety measures in place to ensure the safest environment for everyone. For more on how we are keeping guests and staff safe this summer, please read our COVID-19 Safety Plan.
