Since August 2021, Canada has limited entry by non-citizens to those who have been vaccinated at least twice. Chaim V’Chessed notes that this has been challenging for some travelers from Israel. Those who are recognized by Israel as machlimim (recoverees) have, at times, been advised by Israel to receive one vaccine or less. This entitled them to a Israeli Corona Certificate during the pandemic. However, they have not been allowed to enter Canada based on this status.
Now, Canada is set to drop all remaining Covid restrictions, including vaccine requirements and quarantine. Effective October 1, 2022, all travelers flying to Canada, regardless of citizenship, will no longer have to:
• Submit health information through the ArriveCAN app or site
• Provide proof of vaccination
• Undergo pre- or on-arrival testing
• Observe COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation
• Report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada
By now, the vast majority of the world’s countries have dropped their Covid entry restrictions. However, the United States continues to require non-citizens to be doubly vaccinated before entering the country. It remains to be seen how much longer this rule will remain in effect.
