preferably without pcr, of course.

any carribean islands?

is EU re-opening applicable to Canadians?

as there is no vac passport, yet, in Ontario, how do we show the proof of vac, just carry 2 pieces of paper printed out when you got the shots?

ArriveCAN app to upload your documents and yes carry the 2 pieces of paper

This appears to be a good site, with the different rules involved. Hit the vaccinated button, at the top.

Many countries in EU require Vaccination to go into restaurant/cafes/attractions with their vaccine passport app. So while Canadians can goto some EU countries without proof of Vaccination or testing, you won't be able to eat in a restaurant in Paris for example

Carribean I think only Mexico is a free for all

pcr test is a hassle, not just it costs almost 400 bucks. what if it's positive because of the vac shots? i'm sure airline won't refund me. too much headache.

Dominican Republic has no requirement for vaccinated people. PCR test 72h prior to flying back to Canada.

In France wouldn't you just show the slip of paper showing vaccination? I mean that's your proof. Of course YMMV, but common sense would dictate if you're a foreigner, you wouldn't have been allowed into the country w/o proof of vaccination being shown to customs.

Welcome to the new normal. Although I've been hearing $150-ish for the pcr tests but haven't really looked into it myself.
As for testing positive because of the shots, if that was the case, I'm sure you'd be hearing that a lot from people choosing to travel with cases of false positives.
Unless of course you do have covid.

Anyways, Ireland only seems to require proof of vaccination, (I'm looking into booking a trip myself for early Oct) but don't forget that only certain vaccines are allowed and no mixing.

Regardless of where you go, you need to have a pcr test for the way back.

Just curious, what happens if you don't have a test? I presume they don't let you back on the plane?
I'd have no issue quarantining if it meant not having to do pcr test!

Nope, they require vaccine passport (so no your slip won't work) and is not recognized to access places in France for example

Don't assume/guess what's "common sense" especially during these times when there's very specific requirements. You can enter France without proof of Vaccination (just negative PCR) but won't be able to access any places without the health pass France requires for things like restaurants and attractions

note many people who've tried to apply have not been able to get their pass in time as they're only processing a limited amount of requests and with immediate travel planned/booked and it's quite a challenge to get it on arrival even for the temp 72hr pass with testing at certain selected places only

$400 for PCR test ? Thats way too high.
Mexico and Dominican do not require test or vaccination proof. You will off course require a PCR test to come back to Canada. Most of the better hotels off on-site testing either free or for $100 for the PCR test to return to Canada.
