Airport vaccination and quarantine rules for international travel to Canada
For the South-Asians who are willing to travel to Canada, it is not that big of a hassle (especially when compared to travelling to Middle-Eastern countries). Canada is allowing foreign nationals who are vaccinated into the country.
However, some people may face still difficulties within the airport despite being fully vaccinated. This is due to the rules that must be followed on-arrival in the airports of Canada. The rules are specified below:
-if you are 12 years and four months of age or older, you will need to be fully vaccinated in order to board domestic or international flights departing from Canada.
-Fully vaccinated travellers may be selected for mandatory randomized arrival testing. You must quarantine in a suitable place until you receive a negative test result. You may take public transportation and connecting flights to your place of quarantine.
-Regardless of vaccination status, you will need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test at the time of departure to Canada. Airline staff will be verifying your paperwork at the time of boarding.
-Unvaccinated travellers with the right of entry to Canada will be tested twice (on arrival and on the eighth day), and must be quarantined for 14 days. Mandatory randomized testing of vaccinated travellers is being increased at Pearson.
-If you are fully vaccinated, meet the requirements, and have travelled outside of Canada or the United States, you will not need to quarantine for 14 days; however, you must still provide a quarantine plan and be prepared to quarantine.
Very informative post. Can you elaborate on the part where fully vaccinated travellers may be taken to randomized arrival testing? I mean what procedures are followed and how long does it take for the results to come back?
