The Canadian government has eased its border measures for travelers from India and Morocco.

Key Points:

  • As of Jan. 28, foreign nationals traveling from India or Morocco on direct or indirect flights are no longer required to have a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test from a third country.
  • Travelers, regardless of departure country, must have either a pre-departure PCR test taken within 72 hours before their scheduled flight or arrival at Canada’s land border or a positive PCR test result taken between 10 and 180 days before departure to Canada.
  • Air travelers must continue to take a COIVD-19 test before leaving the airport and all travelers must submit their mandatory information via the ArriveCAN application.
