How Canada's New Instructions are Going to Affect You?
The Canadian government has issued a new travel advisory that will be applied on 22nd February 2021. The government announced that all the travels to Canada would have to provide a COVID-19 molecular test. Yes, the test criteria have now been updated, and you will have to undergo a molecular test if you want to exit the airport and enter the country. However, some expectations and people with unique and specific conditions won't have to fulfil this requirement. Moreover, the travellers will also have to remain in 14 days of quarantine period as well, and this also has some exceptions.
Moreover, the government has also announced that the travellers taking any flights from Canada will have to stay for three days and three nights in the designated and authorized hotels when the test will be accepted. Moreover, they will also have to bear the hotel's cost while they will wait for their COVID-19 molecular test results.
Hotel Booking Information:
The hotel booking information is not yet available, and it will be provided on 18th February 2021. The travellers will have to book a hotel in the same city where they first arrived in Canada. If they receive the negative COVID-19 molecular test results, then they will have to take connecting flights to where they want to go. The government will provide several hotels names which the travellers can choose, and the hotels will also be near to the four main international Canadian airports which are in the following cities:
The price that the travellers will have to pay will include the room food cleaning infection prevention and control measures and security and transportation. The travellers will also have to provide their contact and travel information such as a suitable quarantine plan, electronically through ArriveCan before boarding the flights or crossing the border. All the travellers taking flights to Canada from Pakistan will continue providing their COVID-19 related information electronically daily in their quarantine period.
Moreover, the travellers will also have to avoid contacting other people whom they did not travel with. This is everything you need to know about the latest travel advisory by Canada. We hope that it will help you to take the PIA flights to Canada or any other accordingly. And we also hope that it will help you make your air travel to Canada seamless and avoid all the unwanted situations.
