Most travelers to Canada will need to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus in the future. From the end of October, air and rail travel will not be possible without vaccination.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday that starting October 30, vaccination will apply to everyone taking the machine from Canadian airports or traveling on public trains into the country. A similar regulation for passengers on cruise ships is also being worked out. Similar rules already exist in other countries – but not yet in Germany.
The new rules are part of the Canadian government’s strategy to increase the number of vaccinated people. It also includes an obligation for public employees, including police officers, to prove they have received a vaccine by the end of October, it was announced on Wednesday. Otherwise, they will be relieved of work from mid-November and will not be paid.
Transport sector companies must also ensure that their employees provide proof of their vaccination status. So far, 72 percent of the 38 million Canadians have been fully vaccinated. The relatively successful campaign had recently stalled.
