COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Travel Update
Click to read the latest travel updates about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). To limit the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Canada advises that you avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice. As of May 19, 2020, the 30-day restriction on all non-essential (discretionary) travel at the Canada-U.S. border that was implemented on March 21, 2020, was extended for an additional 30 days until June 21, 2020. This restriction covers all travel of an optional or discretionary nature. Until June 30, 2020, travel to Canada will be restricted for all foreign nationals coming from any country other than the United States. Other restrictions apply to those travelling from the United States. The Government of Canada has put in place an emergency order under the Quarantine Act. It applies to all travellers arriving in Canada. Its purpose is to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. Failure to comply with this order is an offence under the Quarantine Act.
