The Canadian federal government is easing international travel restrictions this week, as starting from Tuesday, fully vaccinated foreign tourists are now being allowed to enter Canada for non-essential purposes.
These international travelers who meet entry conditions will not have to quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival in Canada. However, in the statement by the Greater Toronto Airport Authority, international travelers arriving at Pearson should prepare for the process to take up to three hours or more due to COVID-19 screening measures.
International travelers from many countries had been barred from entering the country since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic until Canada started relaxing the norms last month.
List of Vaccines accepted:
● Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine
● Moderna COVID-19 vaccine
● AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 vaccine
● Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine – single dose
List of Vaccines NOT accepted:
• Bharat Biotech (Covaxin, BBV152 A, B, C)
• Sinovac (CoronaVac, PiCoVacc)
• Vector Institute (EpiVacCorona)
• Cansino (Convidecia, Ad5-nCoV)
• Gamalaya (Sputnik V, Gam-Covid-Vac)
• Sinopharm (BBIBP-CorV, Sinopharm-Wuhan)
Fully vaccinated tourists from India and Morocco can fly to Canada as long as they make a stopover in a third country like Dubai or Abu Dhabi to undergo an RT-PCR test.
Fares to travel to Canada with a transit halt in a third country like Dubai are now cheaper compared to prices last month. If the tourist was to travel to Canada before the 1st and return in mid-October, the return fare on offer on the Mumbai-Toronto route would be very costly compared to the better economical options available only three-four weeks down the line.
