In our shrinking world, many Canadians live in or visit other countries. Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, the keys to a successful trip in all cases are preparation and awareness.
The Consular Affairs Bureau at Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada offers information, advice and services online to help you safely travel. You are encouraged to consult the regularly-updated online travel reports and advisories, as well as to familiarize yourself with the services provided by all Canadian missions, including emergency assistance.
The Canadian Embassy and Consulates General in the United States are committed to helping the thousands of Canadians who cross the border into the United States each day. Visit the website of the Canadian office where you will be travelling for complete information on their services.
Some Canadians may be affected by the United States National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS). For more information on NSEERS.
