OTTAWA, ON, Oct. 21, 2021 /CNW/ - Canada continues to take a risk-based and measured approach to re-opening the border while prioritizing the health and safety of everyone in Canada.
Based on the improved COVID-19 situation in Morocco, Transport Canada will lift the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) that restricts direct flights to Canada from Morocco. To allow for the safe resumption of these flights, the following additional public health measures will be introduced.
Beginning at 00:01 EDT on October 29, fully vaccinated travellers and those unvaccinated travellers who are eligible to enter Canada will be able to board direct flights from Morocco to Canada with the following additional measures:
Travellers who are eligible to enter Canada and who depart Morocco for Canada via an indirect route still need to obtain, within 72 hours of their flight to Canada, a valid negative COVID-19 molecular test from a third country ? other than Morocco ? before continuing their journey to Canada.
Travellers must also meet the entry requirements under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and provide appropriate travel and immigration documentation as necessary. Final determination on entry and quarantine is made by a government representative at the port of entry based on the information presented at the time of entry.
International travel increases the risk of exposure to, and the spread of COVID-19, including infection caused by new variants. Border and public health measures remain subject to change as the epidemiological situation evolves.
