    Good News: Canada’s New Covid jab rule for Int’l travelers from Oct 1

    Here is a good news for international travelers travelling to Canada. Canada stated has revised its visitor entry rules, and announced that visitors from outside Canada will no longer need the Covid-19 vaccination in order to enter the land of maple syrup.

    The removal of border measures has been facilitated by a number of factors, including modelling that indicates that Canada has largely passed the peak of the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 fuelled wave, Canada’s high vaccination rates, lower hospitalization and death rates, as well as the availability and use of vaccine boosters (including new bivalent formulation), rapid tests, and treatments for COVID-19.

    Earlier, Foreign nationals must be immunised in order to enter Canada, same like the United States. But no imminent modification to the mandate is anticipated in the US.

    “We are able to do this because tens of millions of Canadians rolled up their sleeves and got vaccinated,” Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said.

    The existing Covid-19 guidelines will go into force on October 1st, according to Transport Canada.

    New Covid-19 rules for International travelers

    Effective October 1, 2022, all travellers, regardless of citizenship, will no longer have to:

    • Submit public health information through the ArriveCAN app or website;
    • provide proof of vaccination;
    • Undergo pre- or on-arrival testing;
    • Carry out COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation;
    • Monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada.

    Transport Canada is also removing existing travel requirements. As of October 1, 2022, travellers will no longer be required to:

    • undergo health checks for travel on air and rail; or wear masks on planes and trains.
    • The administration of Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, has agreed to let a cabinet order requiring obligatory Covid-19 vaccinations at the border to expire on September 30.

    “The removal of border measures has been facilitated by a number of factors, including modelling that indicates that Canada has largely passed the peak of the Omicron BA.4- and BA.5-fuelled wave, Canada’s high vaccination rates, lower hospitalisation and death rates, as well as the availability and use of vaccine boosters (including new bivalent formulation), rapid tests, and treatments for COVID-19,” the government said in a release.

    The US requires all entrants to be vaccinated, and it is not known if the requirement will be lifted at the same time as Canada’s.
