Canadian Port Restrictions Will Be Lifted Oct. 1

Entering Canada will become much easier starting October 1. All COVID-19 border requirements, including vaccination, mandatory use of ArriveCAN, and any testing and quarantine/isolation requirements will end for all travelers entering Canada whether by land, air or sea.

After Prime Minister Trudeau announced that Canada is lifting their COVID-19 vaccine mandate for foreign travelers, U.S. Senator Daines issued the following statement: “Finally. President Biden needs to follow suit immediately for the sake of Montana truck drivers and travelers,” Daines said.

Transport Canada is also removing existing travel requirements. Travelers will no longer be required to undergo health checks for travel on air and rail; or wear masks on planes and trains.
