The federal government plans to end the month-long ban on direct flights from India early next week. This will be replaced with enhanced COVID-19 screening protocols from anyone entering Canada from India. Transport Canada released a statement on Tuesday which said the current restrictions will be extended to September 26.
By that date, travellers will have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular test from an approved Genestrings Laboratory at the Delhi airport. The test will have to be taken within 18 hours of their departure and they will have to upload their vaccination details to the ArriveCAN app or on the website.
Individuals from India that take an indirect flight to Canada will need proof of a negative molecular test within 72 hours of departure. As an initial step, Transport Canada will welcome three direct flights from India on Wednesday “to ensure that the new measure is working.” The imposed restrictions banning direct flights were implemented on April 22 due to the increase of the Delta variant.
