Canada relaxes travel conditions since February 28
The Government of Canada has announced that it will make a series of adjustments to the border measures from 28 February, which means a "gradual relaxation" of the current restrictions. It has been decided to lift the ban on international flights to all airports. Tourists with a full vaccination program will be able to enter the country, and the tests will be random and not mandatory as before. Unvaccinated Canadians will be quarantined.
One of the changes is that the travel health permit will be changed from level 3 to level 2, which means that Canadians will no longer have to avoid traveling for non-essential purposes.
This easing of restrictions is possible due to a number of factors such as Canada's high vaccination rate (81% of the population), the availability and increasing use of rapid tests for positive cases and lower hospitalization rates, among others.
As of February 28, travelers arriving in Canada from any country with a full vaccination schedule up to 14 days prior to travel will be able to enter and some passengers will be randomly selected for on-arrival testing , but will not be required to remain in quarantine pending the outcome.
Accepted vaccines include AstraZeneca (Covishield, SK Bioscience and Vaxzevria), Covaxin, Janssen, Moderna, Pfizer, Sinopharm or Sinovac. Vaccination certificates must be uploaded to the ArriveCAN platform before traveling. Children under the age of 12 traveling with vaccinated adults will be exempt from quarantine.
