The Canada Border Services Agency is reminding those planning to travel during the Canada Day long weekend what to expect at border crossings.
This summer, travelers will return to a border with evolving COVID-19 requirements, which could cause delays during peak periods, CBSA said in a press release on Tuesday.
The agency said it is working with government and industry partners “to reduce long wait times at the border, but there are also things travelers can do to make the process easier for themselves and other travelers.”
Travelers must complete their ArriveCAN application within 72 hours of a cross-border journey. They must also ensure that they are eligible to enter Canada – foreigners must meet the entry requirements and present appropriate travel and immigration documentation.
Land travelers should also have their documents ready, including their ArrivalCAN receipt, passport or travel documents, a vaccination certificate and identification for everyone in the vehicle.
