With the border opening up, and a new app provided by the government for travellers entering the country, a local attraction is starting to see some Canadian visitors.
The federal government opened up the Canadian border early last month for US visitors the first time since March 2020. As a part of this, they introduced the ArriveCan app. It can be downloaded on a smart phone and is a tool to assist travellers entering the country or returning home to Canada.
All travellers, with a few exceptions, have to use ArriveCan to enter the country by land, air or water. A trip must be registered on the app 72 hours before arriving at a border crossing.
When a person goes on ArriveCan, they enter relevant information, including their vaccination status. This includes type of vaccines and dates of immunization. Passport info must also be included. Your date and time of arrival to the border and your quarantine plan are also a part of the information you must provide. You will be given an online ticket, which can be presented to a border services officer or airline carrier. The app and receipt are not a replacement for your passport or vaccination information, however.
