Editor’s note: Coronavirus cases remain high worldwide. Health officials warn that travel increases the chances of the virus spreading and spreading. Staying home is the best way to slow down transmission. Below you will find information on what to know if you still plan to travel, last updated on November 26th.
What is offered
This is the ultimate destination for adventure. Whether it’s skiing and snowboarding in the Rocky Mountains or bear watching in the wilds of Ontario, Canada has it all to satisfy travelers who want to spend some time outdoors.
Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City are perfect for getaway to the city, with top-notch culture, food and entertainment.
Who can go
Citizens and permanent residents can enter Canada, but if they are not vaccinated they must self-quarantine for 14 days.
However, from November 30, the Government of Canada will expand its list of accepted vaccines to include Sinopharm, Sinovac and COVAXIN, coinciding with the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use List (EUL) ( WHO).
For travelers arriving by land, all visitors, with some exceptions, must also submit a test for a negative Covid-19 molecular test performed in the United States within 72 hours of arrival, or a positive test done on the 14th to 90th days before arrival.
What are the restrictions?
At the moment, international flights are allowed to land at the international airports of these Canadian cities: Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Halifax, Quebec, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Edmonton.
According to a Transport Canada press release, this list will be expanded on November 30, 2021. International flights carrying passengers will be able to land at the following additional Canadian airports: St. John’s International, John C. Munro Hamilton International, Waterloo Region International, Regina International, Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International, Kelowna International, Abbotsford International and Victoria International.
The quarantine plan should detail where you will be staying, how you will arrive, and how you will arrange for the delivery of essential items such as groceries and medicines. Failure to comply with the plan could result in six months in prison and a fine of CAD $ 750,000 (US $ 593,000).
In addition, all arrivals are given a health check by a border guard to assess any symptoms.
What is the situation of Covid-19?
Canada is now in the midst of a national Covid-19 vaccine program.
Canada coped well with the initial wave of Covid-19. However, a second deadly wave in late 2020 led to further blockades.
Several provinces eased their restrictions as the number of cases dropped in recent months, but a fourth wave emerged in late summer.
After a decline in October, cases are currently stable, averaging 2,400 cases per day in the country.
What can visitors expect?
Mask mandates vary between provinces.
Provinces have relaxed rules on social gatherings, indoor dining and travel in recent months in response to rising vaccination rates.
Most Canadian provinces continue to advise people to keep a distance of two meters (6.5 feet) in order to reduce the spread of the virus.
