Canada closes borders for unvaccinated foreign tourists against COVID-19

Foreign tourists who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter Canada for a while, as the government does not want to jeopardize the progress made in fighting the virus, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday.

“I can say right now that this will not happen for a long time,” Prime Minister Trudeau said when asked by reporters when unvaccinated tourists will be allowed to enter Canada.

Trudeau added that there will be more to say in the “coming weeks” about reopening Canada’s borders for fully vaccinated tourists.

And the Americans keep the shutters drawn. The US land borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed for non-essential travel until at least July 21, the US Department of Homeland Security announced on Sunday.

The 30-day extension was announced after Canada made public the extension of restrictions that were due to expire recently and are in effect from March 2020 due to the new coronavirus pandemic. The US executive held working group meetings last week with Canada and Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that it noted “positive developments in recent weeks and participates with other U.S. agencies in White House expert working groups with Canada and Mexico to identify conditions under which restrictions can be relaxed in safety and sustainability conditions ”
