Canada Extends Ban On Direct Flights From India Until August 21


The Govt of Canada on Monday extends the ban on direct flights from India by another 30 days, the ban was about to expire on July 21, but will now remain in place until August 21.

It is the fourth time the ban has been extended since it was first imposed on 22nd April 2021 amid the fears of Coronavirus transmission of the Delta variant.

The extension of the ban was “based on public health advice” said a release issued on Monday from Health Canada.

The Canadian Govt has also extended the requirement related to third-country pre-departure Covid-19 tests for travelers to Canada from India via an indirect route.


It may be noted that recently Canada has revised its official travel advisory and said will not accept the COVID-19 molecular test report from India.

Therefore, the travelers have to get themselves tested for the coronavirus in a ‘third country’ before they continue their journey to Canada.

“This proof must be obtained in a third country before Indian travelers continue their journey to Canada. You might need to seek entry and stay in a third country for at least 14 days,” the advisory stated.

As per the advisory, passengers who have previously tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and are traveling from India to Canada have to now provide proof of a coronavirus test conducted between 14 to 90 days prior to their departure.
