Toronto Pearson Airport scrapped the decision made last week which would separate arriving international passengers based on vaccination status. Senior Advisor of Communications at the airport Beverly MacDonald said to CTV News Toronto on Saturday, that the airport would separate arriving travellers.
The decision was to help streamline border clearance, as unvaccinated and vaccinated travellers have different entry requirements. The airport just released a statement that reversed the decision. The statement said, “Toronto Pearson, in collaboration with the government and other partners, has determined that separation of vaccinated and partially/non-vaccinated travellers in customs lines results in minimal operational efficiencies.”
The practice will stop as of July 26, 2021, at the Toronto Pearson Airport and the Vancouver International Airport. The Vancouver Airport Authority said, “Effective immediately, passengers entering Canada from the U.S. or another international destination will no longer be separated based on vaccination status prior to reaching Customs.”
