As Canada extends its travel ban to India, the US relaxes its travel restrictions

On Monday, July 19, the US modified its travel advisory for India from Level 4 (strongly advising Americans not to go to the country) to Level 3 (strongly advising citizens to reconsider travelling).

Meanwhile, all flights from India have been halted in Canada until August 21. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for India owing to COVID-19, suggesting a high level of COVID-19, suggesting a high level of COVID-19 in the nation, according to a statement from the US State Department, PTI reported. 

“Your chance of getting COVID-19 and having severe symptoms may be reduced if you are completely vaccinated with an FDA-approved vaccine, according to an official statement. Please examine the CDC’s particular recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers before planning any overseas travel,” PTI said.

After a second wave of coronavirus infections that crippled India’s healthcare system, daily coronavirus cases have dropped to four-month lows. Experts, on the other hand, have cautioned authorities against reopening cities too quickly, citing worries about congestion at tourist attractions.

The judgment has no bearing on travel restrictions established in May, which prohibit almost all non-U.S. individuals who have spent the previous 14 days in India from entering the country. South Africa, China, Iran, Brazil, the UK, Ireland, and other 26 European countries with open borders have similar travel restrictions.
