Canada updated its travel advisory for India on Thursday by removing the requirements for travellers to get a negative RT-PCR results for a test taken within 18 hours of departure of a flight, from a single laboratory operated by the company Genestrings at Delhi airport. That was applicable to direct flights being operated between the two countries.

In a statement emailed to CTVNews.ca, a spokesperson for the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) said recent rates of positivity among travellers from the India and Morocco have been similar to or lower than those of other travellers.

Earlier, the Canadian government had made it mandatory for flyers to carry negative Covid19 test report not more than 18 hours before departure from the approved laboratory at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. However, this rule has now been cancelled by the Canadian government.
