Country travel advice and advisories

On the Country Travel Advice page, you will find official information and advice from the Government of Canada on situations that may affect your safety and well-being abroad, as well as other important travel issues such as security, local laws and culture, entry and exit requirements and health.

No matter where in the world you intend to travel, make sure you check the Travel Advice and Advisories page twice: once when you are planning your trip, and again shortly before you leave. If the region or the country you will be visiting becomes subject to a Travel Advisory, it may affect your travel health insurance or your trip cancellation insurance.

The decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the individual.
