Canada is set to allow direct flights from India for the first time since the spring.
The flight ban has been extended until September 26, 2021, at which time fully vaccinated passengers will be able to enter Canada as long as they have a negative COVID-19 molecular test from the lab at the Indira Gandhi International Airport that was conducted within 18 hours of departure.
Exceptionally unvaccinated passengers, who are eligible to enter Canada, may enter the country on a direct flight from India provided they have previously tested positive for COVID-19 and have obtained a positive molecular test from a certified lab in India. The test must have been conducted between 14 and 180 days prior to departure.
Passengers traveling via indirect flights must still obtain a negative COVID-19 molecular test from a third country before traveling to Canada.
