Passengers from India traveling to Canada must show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test from an authorized laboratory at the Delhi airport.

A month-long ban on passenger flights from India has been lifted by Canada. Canada had already extended the ban on all direct commercial and private passenger flights from India until September 26.

“Direct flights from India to Canada will restart on September 27, 2021,” the Canadian government said in a statement.

According to Transport Canada, once the limitation on direct flights is lifted, eligible visitors to Canada would be permitted to board direct flights from India to Canada.

Indian travelers must show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test from a laboratory approved by the Delhi airport. The report should be completed no later than 18 hours before departure, according to the instructions.


After the limitation on direct flights expires, travelers traveling on those flights who are entitled to enter Canada must:

Obtain a negative COVID-19 molecular test result before departure from the Genestrings Laboratory, which is located above the metro station in the Airport Connect Building (ACB) at Indira Gandhi International Airport.

This test must be completed within 18 hours of their scheduled departure. Before boarding, show the air operator the test report with a QR code supplied by this laboratory.

Travelers who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 can also present a positive molecular test issued by an Indian authorized laboratory. The collection must have occurred between 14 and 180 days prior to their anticipated travel to Canada.


Any traveler who is unable to achieve these conditions will be denied boarding.

Flights that aren’t direct

Passengers traveling the indirect route from India to Canada must still provide a pre-departure negative COVID-19 molecular test result from a third nation before continuing their journey to Canada.

Keep the following in mind

Certain countries do not allow travelers arriving from India or passengers who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 to enter or transit their country.

COVID-19 testing for transit passengers may not be available in all international airports or third-country locations.

If you test positive while in transit, you may be subjected to local quarantine restrictions or be returned to your port of origin.

According to sources familiar with the situation, Air Canada will resume flights from India on September 27 (Monday), while Air India will begin flights to Canada on September 30.
