hile Canada has started easing Covid-19 travel restrictions for some its own citizens, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it will be some time before unvaccinated international travelers will be allowed into the country.
“I can tell you right now that's not going to happen for quite a while,” Trudeau told reporters at a press conference yesterday in British Columbia.
But for fully vaccinated travelers, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The prime minister said that “all our conversations” are on how to reopen the border to travelers who have received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“The next step will be looking at what measures we can allow for international travelers who are fully vaccinated,” the prime minister said. “That will be our first focus, and we will have more to say in the coming weeks.”
The U.S.-Canada border has been closed to non-essential travel since March 2o2o restrictions are set to remain in place until at least July 21.
