The Canadian government on July 21, extended the ban on direct flights from India for another 30 days due to the effect of Delta variant of novel coronavirus, a ban that was due to end on July 21, but will now remain in place until August 21, 2021.

A release from Health Canada on Monday said the extension of the ban was "based on public health advice".

The Government of Canada has also increased the requirement related to third country pre-departure covid-19 tests for passengers traveling from India to Canada via the indirect route.

Travel advisory of Canada stated that, "This proof must be obtained in a third country before Indian travelers continue their journey to Canada. You might need to seek entry and stay in a third country for at least 14 days,"

It may be noted that recently Canada has revised its official travel advisory and said that it will not accept covid-19 molecular test reports from India.

Therefore, travellers will need to get themselves tested for coronavirus in a 'third country' before continuing to travel to Canada.

According to the advisory, passengers who have previously tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and are traveling from India to Canada will now have to provide proof of the coronavirus test.
