Yesterday's Osoyoos border crossing

We crossed the border into Canada yesterday at Osoyoos. There was only one checkpoint open making the wait close to an hour. You are asked to wear masks as you approach the crossing booth.
We were asked for our passports, but the ArriveCAN QR code was not necessary. The officer said it came up automatically on his computer. He only asked about guns, weapons, our cat and alcohol.

We had written up 3 pages of things to declare including all the food, wood, medicines, soil, animals and alcohol in the trailer. I had also unlocked all the hatches to both the trailer and truck bed. However none of that was necessary and we were finished in under 5 minutes. It's great to be up in Osoyoos! Last time we were here was 2018.

I just did four border crossings to pick up my 21ne traveling from Alaska to Sumas and back through. It was fast and easy. I made sure my brother and I had all our shots and docs. What the border agents want is for you to fill out ArriveCan ahead of time and be ready. We were. All they asked for was our passports. Answer half a dozen routine questions and we were through.

Make sure you get ArriveCAN app and fill it out before approaching the Sumas border. You will not be let in without it.

We diligently filled out all Covid info in the ArriveCan app 24 hours before crossing. I confirmed that we had digital copies of both our 1 and 2 Moderna shots and our 2 boosters.

When we got to the border, the agent asked when we were last in Canada. I told him last November. He said, “Yes, that is what I see here and I only see evidence of one shot”.

Actually, we crossed in November with evidence of both shots and negative molecular tests. He didn’t want to see our ArriveCan graphic code. He just asked for digital (or paper) evidence of our shot history. I showed him all four cards (2 for me and 2 for my wife) and he said, “OK”. He couldn’t figure out why the app info was not complete. Bring backup.

He asked if we had watercraft (we had folding kayaks) so we got to hang a right into the aquatic inspection station where we pulled out one kayak, unfolded it and got it checked out. They were so excited by the kayaks, they asked to take pictures of it for their Facebook page.

Then we were on our way.

Fill out the ArriveCAN app and if youíre fully vaccinated itís apiece of cake,!
We breezed thru in minutes. Way less hassle than it was in 2020 when the virus was young.

We had a million and one questions from the US border guard coming back from Canada today.
And it was simple going to canada.
