On October 21, 2021, the Government of Canada lifted their blanket advisory to “Avoid Non-Essential Travel” that was in effect from March 13, 2020 and introduced a “COVID-19 – Travel Advice” statement.
The Travel Advisory to “Avoid All Cruise Ship Travel” outside of Canada still remains in effect
What does this mean?
• If you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days before the start of your trip and the Canadian Government travel advisory for your destination does not instruct to “Avoid All Travel” or “Avoid Non-Essential Travel” due to COVID-19, Manulife Travel Insurance policies that include Emergency Medical benefits will provide coverage for any unforeseen medical emergency related to COVID-19 in accordance with the terms and conditions of your policy. This applies for trips with a departure date of on or after October 21, 2021.
• If you have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days before the start of your trip, the Travel Advisory to “Avoid Non-Essential Travel” remains in effect.
