COVID travel restrictions for Canada in October 2021
Although restrictions have eased and Canadian borders reopened from 7 September 2021, there are still travel requirements that you need to take into account to avoid being refused travel or getting fined.
Here we discuss the most recent COVID updates, Canadian Government approved vaccinations and some important news that travellers from India and Morocco need to keep in mind when planning trips to Canada.
Fully vaccinated traveller exemption
If you are fully vaccinated with a Government of Canada-accepted vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Canada, you will be able to travel to Canada from September 7, 2021!
This is also provided that you meet specific entry requirements and if the COVID-19 situation in Canada remains stable and favourable for travel. The video above outlines the eligibility requirements and what you need to qualify for the fully vaccinated traveller exemption.
