Should I Stay or Should I Go? A Guide to Understanding Government Travel Advisories
Is it safe to travel yet? That’s the question on everyone’s mind these days, as the world continues to undergo the largest vaccine rollout in history. The Government of Canada’s travel advisories can help you figure out when - and where - it is safe to travel to, whenever you’re ready to explore again.
Frequently updated, these advisories offer destination-specific advice that will keep you informed, wherever you plan to go. Advisories can be triggered for a variety of reasons, including:
- Health emergencies (COVID-19, Zika, Ebola, etc.)
- Civil unrest and political instability
- Natural disasters (earthquakes, hurricanes, wild fires, etc.)
CAA Travel recommends that travellers check advisories for their destination-of-choice before they book, immediately before departure, and again right after leaving to stay optimally informed.
