Canada drops covid rules for travelers

Traveling in Canada is about to get a whole lot easier.

From October 1, the country is lifting all coronavirus-related entry and travel restrictions. This means that visitors will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination, get tested, submit health information through an official online site, report symptoms, isolate or quarantine, or to wear a mask on planes or trains.

Rules for cruise passengers are also being lifted, meaning passengers won’t need to test negative before boarding a ship, being vaccinated or using the online public health reporting system.

Public health authorities said several factors led to the end of the pandemic-era rules, including high vaccination rates; low hospitalization and mortality rates; new vaccine reminders; and patterns that indicate the country has passed the peak of infections of the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants.

“From the beginning, our government has taken the necessary steps to keep Canadians safe in the face of a global pandemic,” Marco Mendicino, Minister of Public Safety, said in a statement. “COVID-19 border measures were always meant to be temporary and we are making adjustments based on the current situation because that is what Canadians expect.

The country stopped requiring vaccinated travelers to show proof of a negative test in April, but kept the vaccination mandate in place. Visitors could still be selected for testing upon arrival.

Canada is following countries around the world that have ended border restrictions. In Europe, for example, destinations such as France, Italy, the UK, Portugal and Germany dropped entry rules earlier this year.

The United States still requires international tourists to be vaccinated.

Canada had a record year for international tourism in 2019, with approximately 22 million visitors. That number fell to 3.1 million last year, when borders were closed until late summer.

Authorities are still recommending travelers wear high-quality masks and refrain from traveling if they show symptoms of coronavirus. People who arrive sick in Canada should tell someone like a flight attendant, cruise line employee or border agent, the government has said. They could be “referred to a quarantine officer who will decide if the traveler needs further medical evaluation,” the official statement said.

Under previous quarantine rules, border agents and public health officials can screen people “and advise them on the right things to do” if they are infected with coronavirus or other illnesses.

“If people enter Canada and find they have been infected with covid-19, they will need to follow local public health measures,” Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said Monday during a briefing. press conference.
