Unvaccinated Tourists Won’t Be Allowed Into Canada For “Quite A While”: Justin Trudeau
Canada has started easing pandemic travel restrictions for its citizens, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it will be “quite a while” before unvaccinated foreign tourists are allowed into the country.
“I can tell you right now, that’s not going to happen for quite a while,” Trudeau said.
“We need to continue to ensure that the safety of Canadians of all the sacrifices that so many people have made over the past many, many months, are not for nothing,” he said.
The prime minister, however, signaled changes to the rules “in the coming weeks” that could allow fully vaccinated tourists to visit Canada. He did not provide details.
Pressure on Ottawa from the ailing tourism sector has been rising to relax travel restrictions and reopen Canada’s border with the United States — the world’s longest — which has been closed to non-essential travellers since March 2020. (Source NDTV)
