Canada : Fully vaccinated air travellers to undergo molecular test on arrival

Amidst concerns over the Omicron variant of Covid-19, Canada has introduced fresh measures for air travellers, requiring even fully vaccinated passengers to undergo a molecular test on arrival and subjecting them to quarantine till those results are available. Exemptions only to those arriving from U.S.

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said foreign nationals who had been to Nigeria, Malawi and Egypt in the previous 14 days would be temporarily banned from entering Canada.

Unvaccinated travellers will have to spend a full 14 days in quarantine at home or in a hotel if they have been to one of the high risk African countries.
