The Canadian federal government has further eased travel restrictions for entry into the country, reports Travel Pulse. As of April 25, fully vaccinated travelers entering Canada are no longer required to provide a quarantine plan upon entry. Additionally, they are no longer required to wear masks in public spaces, monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms, quarantine if another traveler in the same travel group shows signs or symptoms or tests positive, and maintain a list of close contacts and locations visited. Additionally, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children aged five to 11 no longer need a COVID test to enter Canada.

Meanwhile, pre-entry tests are still required for partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers ages 12 and older who are currently eligible to travel to Canada. All travelers are still required to use the ArriveCAN app to upload travel and vaccination information within 72 hours of their arrival to Canada and/or before boarding a plane or cruise ship destined for Canada. Further, all travelers, regardless of vaccination status, must continue to wear a mask on planes and within airports.

Singapore’s Ministry of Health has announced that, as of April 26, Singapore is no longer requiring fully vaccinated travelers to take pre-departure tests prior to arrival in the country. This also applies to non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below. While the country has eased requirements for fully vaccinated travelers, entry requirements for non-fully vaccinated travelers aged 13 and up remain unchanged. All non-fully vaccinated travelers aged 13 and above who are allowed to enter Singapore are required to take a pre-departure test within 2 days before departure for Singapore, undergo a 7-day quarantine, and take a Polymerase Chain Reaction COVID-19 test at the end of their quarantine period.

Hong Kong will open its borders to non-residents starting in May, as it begins the process to ease up on some of the world’s strictest COVD-19 travel restrictions, reports Bloomberg. Beginning May 1, foreign travelers will be subject to the same procedure as residents, the government said. Under the new rules, travelers must take a rapid COVID-19 test at the airport, and those who are negative can head to a designated quarantine hotel for seven days. The ban on non-residents has been in place since March 2020, though it was briefly lifted for travelers from certain places. Decisions on wider easing will likely be left to Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s successor John Lee when he takes over in July after an uncontested election. Additionally, Hong Kong is easing rules for halting a flight route, saying a suspension will come into effect if five passengers test positive on arrival, up from the previous three.

The Biden administration has stated that it is extending the COVID-19 requirement that non-US citizens crossing land or ferry terminals at the US-Mexico and US-Canada borders must be fully vaccinated, reports Skift. The requirements were first adopted in November 2021 as part of reopening the US to land crossings by foreign travelers after the borders had been closed since March 2020. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said the decision to extend the requirement came after consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which says vaccines remain the most effective public health measure to protect people COVID-19. “The Biden-Harris administration is committed to protecting public health while facilitating lawful trade and travel, which is essential to our economic security,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said.
