UPDATED: MAY 1, 2022


Effective September 7, 2021, Canada’s borders are opened to fully vaccinated visitors from any country who meet entry requirements.

All residents and visitors will be required to provide proof of vaccination to access discretionary services in British Columbia. For more details, visit the Government of British Columbia’s website.

We encourage all travellers to be fully informed of the pre-entry and on-arrival public health and testing requirements both federally and provincially. This includes the mandatory use of the ArriveCAN app. Travellers should plan for extra time in the lead up, and upon the arrival of their trip.

For the latest information on travel to Canada including the updated federal requirements and restrictions, please visit the Government of Canada website.

BC tour operators, accommodation providers and attraction hosts have implemented stringent protocols to keep visitors safe, and visitors are asked to return the favour by travelling responsibly this fall and winter.

Travellers are encouraged to reference Destination BC’s “Know Before You Go” page for information on the latest travel restrictions, what’s open and more.
