Canada Ends COVID-19 Entry Requirements

WORLD

People travelling to Canada will now have an easier time entering the country as it ends its COVID-19 entry requirements starting October 1, 2022. The travellers will no longer have to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, and take a COVID-19 test before or after arriving in the country.

The Public Health Agency of Canada said travellers will no longer have to follow quarantine rules. Canada will also not require the use of ArriveCAN, which travellers can use to submit information such as travel details and vaccination. The reason for ending COVID-19 travel measures is that Randy Boissonnault, tourism minister of Canada, said that they are ensuring that as they open up the economy, they want to do it in a systematic and respectful way.

Earlier this year, Canada ended its entry requirements for fully vaccinated travellers, so they do not have to show a negative pre-departure COVD-19 test, but they still have to use the ArriveCAN system.

People who were not considered fully vaccinated could only enter the country for some selected types of visits, and had to show a negative test before and after their arrival in the country, along with a quarantine period of 14 days.
