COVID-19 vaccination restrictions for travel to Canada

Travel to and from Canada via the United States

For tourist visits to Canada of less than 180 days, U.S. citizens do not need visas. For complete information on visa categories and requirements, consult the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website.

Anyone with a criminal record (including misdemeanors or alcohol-related driving offenses) may not be able to enter Canada without first obtaining approval for rehabilitation well in advance of any planned travel. To determine whether you may be inadmissible and how to overcome this finding, please refer to the CIC website.

Entry into Canada is solely determined by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials in accordance with Canadian law. Please see the CBSA’s website for full details.

  • Entry into Canada: Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada carry both proofs of citizenship and proof of identity. A valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens. Children under 16 need only present proof of U.S. citizenship.
  • Entry into the United States: When traveling by air from Canada, U.S. citizens are required by U.S. law to present a U.S. passport book.
