Canada has suspended all commercial and private passenger flights from India on 23rd April 2021 and the suspension will continue until July 21, 2021.
However, Canada on Thursday issues a new travel advisory and said that it 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 means passengers from India who wish to travel to Canada in the said period may book a flight via an ‘indirect route.’
