Canada Drops Travel Advisory for US Ahead of Border Reopening

Canada has scrapped an official advisory urging its citizens to avoid non-essential foreign travel. That is considered a success of its campaign to vaccinate people against COVID-19. 82 per cent of eligible Canadians aged 12 and up are already fully vaccinated.

Canada now only advises travelers that they should be fully vaccinated before leaving the country.

“The beginnings of the transition away from the more blanket approach really recognizes vaccines are very effective at preventing severe outcome,” Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam said during a press briefing, as per Reuters.

The change comes just weeks ahead of the United States’ land borders reopening to vaccinated Canadian tourists. Starting Nov. 8, Canadians will be able to cross the border by land or ferry for tourism purposes or to visit friends and family.

The updated guidance says all travelers should take protective measures like mask wearing and they should continue to avoid cruise ship travel outside of Canada. Those traveling to the U.S. should “exercise normal security precautions,” according to the Canadian government website.

The United States reportedly lost almost $500 billion in travel spending due to the travel ban that was put it place early in 2020. About 25% of foreign visitors are Canadian. In 2019, 20.7 million Canadians visited the United States and then number dropped to 4.8 million in 2020.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last 6+ years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
