Mandatory vaccination is in effect on planes and trains

(Montreal) Full Vaccination against Kovid-19 As of Saturday, October 30, all passengers 12 years of age and older in Canada must travel by air, train and ship.

This requirement applies to passengers on commercial flights, passengers on interstate trains, and passengers on large ships with overnight accommodation such as cruise ships.

Under the new federal policy, travelers over the age of 12 will have to prove that they received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine approved by Health Canada at least 14 days before boarding.

However a grace period of one month was granted. It will therefore be possible to offer a negative screening test to passengers who have not been vaccinated until November 29th.

A relief will also be given to foreign nationals who can travel until February 28 to depart from Canada, even if they have not been vaccinated. However, these passengers are required to submit a negative molecular test for COVID-19 before boarding the aircraft. In order to benefit from this exemption from the rule, they must have entered Canada before October 30th.

From November 30, anyone traveling by train, plane or cruise ship in Canada will have to prove that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
