Travel restrictions and requirements for all travellers

To manage the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), travel restrictions are in place to limit travel to Canada. Most people cannot travel to Canada at this time.

These measures are currently in effect until April 21st, 2021, and may be extended. 

These restrictions stop all non-essential (discretionary) travel to Canada.

Air travellers 5 years of age or older allowed to enter Canada are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result to the airline prior to boarding international flights bound for Canada. See new requirements for air travellers.
