Official Global Travel Advisory

Avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice.

As foreign governments implement strict travel restrictions and as fewer international transportation options are available, you may have difficulty returning to Canada or may have to remain abroad for an indeterminate period.

If you are outside of Canada:

If you are currently outside Canada or you are returning home, see COVID-19 safety and security advice for Canadians abroad.

If you need financial help to return to Canada, see COVID-19: Financial help for Canadians outside Canada.

Avoid all cruise ship travel due to COVID-19.

Travel Advice and Advisories

The Travel Advice and Advisories are the Government of Canada’s official source of destination-specific travel information. They give you important advice to help you to make informed decisions and to travel safely while you are abroad.

No matter where you plan to travel, make sure you check the Travel Advice and Advisories page for your destination twice: once when you are planning your trip, and again shortly before you leave. Safety and security conditions may change between the date you book your travel and your departure date.

See Travel Advice and Advisories – FAQ for more information.
