Transport Canada tweeted that direct flights from India will be able to land in Canada from 27 September. However, additional public safety measures need to be taken.

Travel recommendations from Canada
The Canadian Government Travel Council said passengers traveling to Canada must show the airline a lab-issued QR code report before boarding the plane. It states that those previously found to be crown positive must submit a positive report from a recognized laboratory. This sampling must be between 14 and 180 days from the planned departure to Canada.
Canada’s travel advisory also warns that airlines can ban passengers who don’t meet these requirements. Meanwhile, India’s Ottawa High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria welcomed the move, saying it was a major step towards normalizing air traffic between the two countries. He added that India is working with Canada to make it easier for Indians to travel.
