Canada will remove vaccination requirements for all travelers and make the ArriveCan app optional, starting on October 1, 2022.
According to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) PHAC, all travellers will no longer need to comply with the following requirements as of October 1, 2022:
In addition, masks will no longer be mandatory on flights or trains within Canada. According to PHAC, Canada’s removal of travel restrictions is due to its high vaccination rates, lower hospitalizations and deaths, and availability of vaccine boosters. Masks remain a strong recommendation from the government, and travellers should closely monitor their health.
Travelers arriving from abroad will no longer be required to download the ArriveCan app. For CBSA agents to verify travel plans and vaccinations, travellers will no longer need to upload them onto the app.
In response to the global outlook for the COVID-19 pandemic, this announcement was expected. A decline in cases has been observed as more people are vaccinated and the virus becomes endemic, like the common cold, rather than pandemic.
The vaccination requirement for domestic and outbound travel has already been suspended in Canada since last June. The suspension of those vaccine mandates was attributed to a better public health situation at the time as 90% of Canadians already had COVID-19 vaccines.
As of the start of the pandemic, there have been over 612 million recorded COVID-19 cases and more than six million deaths. These numbers are likely higher as many people do not get tested or otherwise diagnosed.
We have enrolled ourselves with Winny for Canada Immigration(was referred by a friend) and we are very happy with the service provided by them. We are yet to complete the entire service with them but until now the staff has proven to be knowledgeable, patient, cooperative and helpful. We hope to complete our further immigration procedure in the same way.
Good luck and keep going!
A great place for the overseas solutions, had a conversation with Seema Bhavsar for my Canada visa process, and she guided with all the process and even she explained with very easy methods, earlier i was not sure what to do but after Seema guidance i have started the process. A special thanks to Seema and her team Winny Immigration.
Finding an immigration consultant is no piece of cake but Winny is surely cherry on that cake!! I visited Winny’s Ahmedabad office and it proved to be an one stop solution for everything. Ms. Monika Jha is an amazing counsellor. She cleared all our doubts, gave excellent guidance and regularly checked upon us during the process. The case officers, teaching faculty, counsellors and the admin team at Winny are a 10/10 recommend for immigration.
I am from Ahmedabad and planning to immigrate canada. After inquiry in so many consultancy i found Winny has good transparency. in first inquiry they cleared all my doubt and tell me what is process and how much it take times. Most important is that all process is online. it save time for working professional.
One of the best consulting firms I’ve come across is very transparent and has high-skilled employees. From the last two years, I’ve been planning to go through the Canadian PR process and have visited many consultancy firms for information. Each one gave me different information, but one of my friends suggested Winny Immigration because Winny is an authorized consultant through the Canadian Government. I visited Winny and decided to start my journey with Winny Immigration. The experience and support I received from them was great.
