Canada extends its ban on international flights from India for another month. This temporary ban was first implemented on Apr 22, 2021 due to the rising Covid-19 cases in both India and Pakistan and the fear of new emerging variants of the virus. In response to that, Canada banned all passenger and business flights from India and Pakistan.
The ban was initially imposed for a period of one month. For flights from Pakistan, the ban was extended once. It will end naturally on Jun 21, 2021. Meanwhile, the Canadian government is planning to ease travel and border restrictions starting Aug 9, 2021 for fully-vaccinated travelers.
In the last month, the Canadian government has taken several measures to ease the travel restrictions. All individuals with their Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) can now travel to Canada and complete their immigration process. In addition to that, fully vaccinated travelers will also be exempted from mandatory quarantine requirements.
