BUFFALO – Travel restrictions along the Canadian border are changing, however tourists from the U.S. are still prohibited.

As of Monday, essential travelers into Canada no longer are required to quarantine for 14 days, stay in government housing, or complete a day-8 COVID test.

Instead, they can be PCR-tested on arrival and await results in isolation.

Restrictions were also lifted for those fully vaccinated, including Canadian citizens, permanent residents, persons registered under the Indian Act, international students, and other essential foreign nationals.

Travelers need to verify their vaccination status by submitting proof of immunization via the ArriveCAN mobile app.
