Canada will allow cruise ships to enter the country

On July 15, 2021, Canada’s transport minister Omar Alghabra announced that all cruise ships complying with the Government of Canada’s public health guidelines will be allowed to enter Canada as of November 1, 2021. On February 4, 2021, Canada suspended all cruise ships and Arctic pleasure craft into the country until February 28, 2022, to protect Canadians from COVID-19. Considering Canada’s improved coronavirus situation, the Government of Canada decided to lift the ban earlier than expected to assist the country’s hard-hit tourism sector.
