International travellers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will once again be allowed onto Canadian soil this week as eased travel restrictions go into effect.
At 12:01 a.m. Sept. 7, all foreign nationals who have been jabbed with a vaccine authorized for use by Health Canada will be allowed into the country for non-essential purposes, and won’t need to quarantine for 14 days. To date, Canada has approved vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.
Except, if you arrive and tell someone you’ve had your jab, most won’t have any idea what you’re talking about . It’s not a common word in Canada. We tend to say that we are vaccinated. Add that to the many words used differently in various countries - and we’re all speaking English.
And yet more Good Travel News … although this one might have a caveat of “Wait & See”
Heathrow and Gatwick: Travel to Australia may be back on the cards after big change in policy
Imagine for the French speaking native from Québec ! A jab ?
Stricter rules for travel WITHIN Canada start October 30, 2021. Proof of vaccination will be required for travel by plane, train, or boat. Here are the details.
Yet another example of how fluid this situation is. We can’t make any assumptions about travel these days as it seems to be forever changing.
Although anyone who enters Canada now has to be vaccinated anyway so this will mostly be of interest to international travellers who are already in Canada, or to unvaccinated Canadians.
Thank you for the update @Snowbird it’s so important to do your research before making travel arrangements to avoid running into unforeseen problems … and to always have a plan B
