Travel to Canada from the U.S.: What to Know 

Is Canada open for travel? 

If you intend to travel to Canada, make sure you look up the most current restrictions for entering the country. 

According to the travel.gc.ca website, Canada is only currently allowing tourism among fully vaccinated travelers. However, the situation has been evolving,  so you should consult both Canadian and the U.S. government travel websites before booking your vacation.  

One precaution that you should take is to obtain travel insurance (or cancellation insurance) for a planned vacation. This way, you can receive full or partial reimbursement if the trip is unexpectedly canceled or you are unable to go.
