Vaccination Requirements for Study and Travel in Canada

AECC Global India       .      Study in Canada      .      Wednesday, 05 January 2022

Canada, like the United States, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and other nations, has published a set of vaccination requirements for Indian visitors, including students. Covaxin, Moderna, AstraZeneca/Covishield, or a single dose of Janssen are among the Indian vaccines recognised in Canada. All overseas students must additionally provide proof of a negative Covid-19molecular test at the Delhi airport's Genestrings Laboratory before boarding the trip. The same must be consumed within 18 hours or 72 hours of boarding a direct trip or a connecting aircraft to Canada, respectively. 

It’s highlighted that quick antigen test results would not be accepted as proof in Canada. Those who are not fully vaccinated would still be permitted to enter Canada, but they would have to satisfy certain other requirements. These prerequisites would include determining whether the university is a designated learning institution (DLI) with a Covid-19 preparedness plan and if so, bringing a valid student permit and an admission letter from the relevant university. Medical students accepted to a Canadian institution would also be required to complete a medical test.

From New Delhi to Toronto, the fastest non-stop flight takes around 14 hours and 45 minutes. On the flight, all passengers will have to complete a Declaration Card and if they are fully vaccinated.
