Beginning November 30th, fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents crossing the U-S border for less than 72 hours won’t need a costly COVID-19 test in order to return home.

Critics in both countries have been complaining for weeks about the need for the expensive and prohibitive tests, which sell for up to $300.

“With more Canadians getting vaccinated every day, we can move forward, though cautiously toward a more open border, economy and society,” said Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos. “At the same time, we can’t let our guard down and everyone one of us must work to protect the gains we’ve made.”

The Public Health Agency of Canada also says that by the end of the month, travellers who received the Sinopharm, Sinovac and Covaxin vaccines will be considered fully vaccinated for travel purposes.
