Can unvaccinated travellers from Ghana enter Canada?

Short answer: No, unvaccinated travellers from Ghana cannot currently enter Canada for non-essential purposes.

Canada currently has strict border measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which include mandatory vaccination requirements for all visitors entering the country for non-essential travel.


Here’s a breakdown of the current situation:

Vaccination requirements:

  • Unvaccinated travellers: As of January 22, 2024, unvaccinated travellers, regardless of citizenship or country of origin, are not permitted to enter Canada for non-essential travel. This includes travellers from Ghana.
  • Vaccinated travellers: Travellers must be fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before entering Canada. Currently, Canada accepts vaccines approved by Health Canada, which include a wide range of brands and combinations. You can find the complete list of accepted vaccines on the Government of Canada website.


There are a few limited exceptions to the vaccination requirement, including:

  • Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and their immediate family members (spouses or common-law partners, dependent children under 22 years old, and dependent parents or grandparents) may still enter Canada, even if unvaccinated. However, they will need to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
  • Travellers with valid medical exemptions for vaccination may be allowed to enter Canada on a case-by-case basis. Documentation from a licensed medical professional is required to support the exemption claim.

Additional considerations:

  • All travellers entering Canada, regardless of vaccination status, will need to meet additional requirements, such as providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test before and upon arrival, completing a quarantine plan, and using the ArriveCAN app to submit travel information.
  • The situation with border measures is constantly evolving, so it is important to check the latest updates from the Government of Canada before planning your travel. You can find the latest information on the website or by contacting the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate.
