“Based on the improved COVID-19 situation in Morocco, Transport Canada will lift the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) that restricts direct flights to Canada from Morocco,” the Transport Canada said.
To allow for the safe resumption of the flights, certain additional public health measures will be introduced, the Transport Canada added.
Travellers must have proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular pre-departure test result documented in the Moroccan COVID-19 PCR Test Certificate issued by the Government of Morocco and recognized by the European Commission, taken within 72.
Alternatuvely, travellers can provide proof of a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days before departure to Canada in lieu of a negative test. Travellers who have been in Morocco more than 14 days and have been infected while in Morocco, must provide proof of a positive COVID-19 molecular test documented in the Moroccan COVID-19 PCR Test Certificate issued by the Government of Morocco.
Travellers who were infected prior to arrival in Morocco must provide proof of previous infection from another country prior to their arrival.
The Transport Canada also added that travellers who are eligible to enter Canada and who depart Morocco for Canada via an indirect route still need to obtain, within 72 hours of their flight to Canada, a valid negative COVID-19 molecular test from a third country – other than Morocco – before continuing their journey to Canada.
