People Travelling To Ireland Required To provide Negative Test

People Travelling To Ireland Required To provide Negative Test”

However, while we await the exact details, concerns are already mounting within the travel sector that the fragile recovery seen towards the end of 2020 will be damaged.

"We understand that the new requirements can create inconveniences and frustration for some travelers, but we are putting in place those requirements to protect the health of all Canadians", Allison St-Jean said. Adam Twidell, CEO of private jet broker PrivateFly, says: "Quite a bit more paperwork is now needed, such as proof of Covid tests, and that might make travel less spontaneous for many people".

Effective Thursday, passengers aged five and older must take a PCR test - the type of test common in Canada involving a deep nasal swab, and distinct from a rapid test.

"We consider that it is perfectly reasonable within 72 hours to get the PCR test and to get results" - electronically or on paper - Garneau told reporters.

"While the industry for months has been calling for systematic testing to reopen borders without quarantine measures, these pleas have fallen on deaf ears, especially in Canada", said the IATA.

Travellers arriving in the country will have their quarantine plans reviewed by a government official, and, if required, they will be required to undergo quarantine in a federal quarantine facility.

Whether "unavailable" means non-existent or simply hard to access is unclear, as is how passengers can prove the tests' unavailability to a customer service agent at a check-in counter.

Co-ordinating a test with takeoff presents another potential hurdle.

Thirty-six flights are scheduled to depart Jamaica for Canada on five different airlines - four of them Canadian - between Friday and January 17, according to flight data firm Cirium. It's just going to aggravate people, and they've got enough stress with COVID. "They don't need this on their heads", he said from a retirement community in Deerfield Beach, Fla., about 65 kilometres north of Miami.

In a separate announcement, Ontario said it will launch a pilot program to voluntarily test incoming passengers at Toronto's Pearson airport.

There are so many unanswered questions - how easy will it be to get a test when overseas? Canada can not stop Canadians from returning, though they must quarantine for two weeks upon their arrival back in Canada.

As of Tuesday, all worldwide travellers coming to Canada must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test but still must quarantine upon arrival.

In the last 48 hours alone, following the introduction of a third lockdown and amid talk of inbound testing, consumers have become more cautious about booking holidays, and about when they realistically expect to travel.

It comes as there were 17 additional deaths of people with coronavirus confirmed in the Irish Republic on Tuesday.

The government says the new measures are being put in place through an "Emergency Order on Mandatory Isolation under the Quarantine Act".

The new requirements were announced back in December, in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 from other countries into Canada.
