DOCUMENTS YOU NEED FOR YOUR TRIP

Travelers departing from Canadian airports require proof of vaccination
Travelers departing from Canadian airports, rail, and passengers vessels on voyages of 24 hours or more need to be fully vaccinated in order to board. This requirement applies to international and domestic departures. Airlines may let you complete your attestation electronically during check-in or via partner apps such as VeriFLY. In this case, it is not necessary to print the form, but travelers may do so as a precaution. If not completed electronically, travelers must print, complete, and carry the indicated attestation form with them. Fully vaccinated travelers must have received a full course of vaccination with an accepted vaccine. The accepted 2 dose vaccines are Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria, COVISHIELD), Sinopharm, Sinovac (CoronaVac, PiCoVacc), or Covaxin, and the accepted 1 dose vaccine is Janssen/Johnson & Johnson. Travelers that have received a combination of 2 accepted vaccines are considered fully vaccinated. Travelers must have received their last dose at least 14 days before departure. Travelers who fail to comply, refuse, or provide untruthful information on this measure, may be subject to a penalty or a fine. Complete Federal Attestation.

This requirement does not apply to: -Travelers under the age of 12 years plus 4 months; -Travelers crossing the Canada-US land border. For exemptions for travellers in the process of being vaccinated, travellers from remote communities, and more, please check the source.

Mandatory proof of vaccination
Travelers are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if 2 weeks have passed since their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. The US government currently accepts vaccines approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. FDA and the WHO. Vaccines accepted are Pfizer-BioNTech (e.g., COMIRNATY, Tozinameran), AstraZeneca-Oxford (e.g., Covishield, Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Moderna, Sinopharm BIBP, Covaxin, Sinovac-CoronaVac, and Novavax/Covovax. Travelers unable to present a valid certificate may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers.
Any combination of 2 doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 2-dose series are accepted. The second dose in a 2-dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4 day grace period) after the first dose.
