Canada to permit entry of travellers fully inoculated with Sinopharm, Sinovac, Covaxin

Canada: Beginning November 30, travellers who are completely vaccinated with Sinopharm, Sinovac, and Covaxin vaccines will be allowed to enter Canada, according to the Canadian government. Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson and Johnson are among the companies that have acquired the vaccines and are currently accepted in Canada.

People leaving Canada by land or air for less than 72 hours will no longer be required to submit documentation of a negative molecular test to re-enter the country effective November 30, according to sources.

This move only affects Canadians, permanent residents, and those who are registered under the Indian Act, as well as minors under the age of 12 and anyone who have medical contraindications to immunisation. Additionally, beginning January 15, some categories of travellers who are currently exempt from entry restrictions will be able to enter Canada only if they have had all of their vaccinations. Individuals seeking to reunite with family, international students, professional and amateur athletes, individuals with a valid work permit, and other important service workers, such as truck drivers, are among those who fall into this category.

"We can move gradually toward a more open border economy and society with more Canadians getting immunised every day," said Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos. "At the same time, we must maintain our vigilance." According to the Canadian government, the country has reported a total of 1,762,434 cases with 29,481 deaths.
