Jun 15. The Canadian government has announced plans to drop its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for domestic and international flights from the 20th of June. Since October of last year, travelers over the age of 12 wishing to travel need to have had a vaccine.
The move marks a major relaxation of Canadian COVID-19 travel requirements. However, it’s not without its caveats. The rule change will only apply to Canadians; international travelers of other nationalities will still have to provide a pre-entry test result, quarantine for 14 days and could be subject to Day 1 and Day 8 testing.
Unvaccinated Canadians who are returning from abroad to Canada will also be required to provide a pre-entry test. While Canadian flyers will be celebrating, Canadians who like cruises won’t be so happy. The government has said the vaccine mandate would remain in place for cruise ship passengers and crews due to the fact that passengers are in close contact with each other for extended periods of time.
