Canada accepts India's WHO-approved Covaxin for travellers' entry

OTTAWA, Nov 21: Expanding its list of approved covid vaccines, the Canadian Government has announced that it will allow international passengers who have been fully vaccinated with Indian Bharat Biotech's Covaxin from November 30. China's Sinopharm and Sinovac have also been included in the revised list.

Currently, Canada allows travellers vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson and Johnson only to enter the country. Those who "qualify as fully vaccinated travellers and who re-enter Canada within 72 hours of leaving, won’t have to provide a pre-entry molecular test result." The vaccination should have been completed 14 days prior to travel.

"This will also apply to their accompanying children under 12, regardless of whether or not the children are vaccinated," the Government said.

Covaxin, approved by the WHO, has also been accepted by the UK from November 22.

The Government also announced that as of January 15, 2022, certain groups of travellers, who are currently exempt from entry requirements, will only be allowed to enter the country if they are fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved for entry into Canada. These groups include:

Individuals travelling to reunite with family (unvaccinated children under 18 years of age will retain exemption if travelling to reunite with an immediate or extended family member who is a Canadian, permanent resident, or person registered under the Indian Act); International students who are 18 years old and older; Professional and amateur athletes; Individuals with a valid work permit, including temporary foreign workers (outside of those in agriculture and food processing); and, Essential service providers, including truck drivers.

Travellers should contact their airline or railway company to obtain the necessary form and submit them.

Travellers should check if they are eligible to enter Canada and meet all entry requirements before heading to the border. In addition, some provinces and territories may have their own entry restrictions in place. Check and follow both the federal and any provincial or territorial restrictions and requirements before travelling.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has launched a new feature in ArriveCAN called Advance CBSA Declaration. This feature will allow travellers arriving at certain airports to electronically submit their customs and immigration declaration in advance of their arrival in Canada. This feature is currently available for travellers arriving at Vancouver International Airport through the ArriveCAN website only. It will soon be launched at other airports across Canada.
