Travel Restrictions

Since March 13, 2020, the Government of Canada has strongly advised against non-essential travel and we put in place among the strictest rules around the world for international travellers.

As of February 22, there will be mandatory PCR testing at the airport for people returning to Canada. At an expense of up to $2,000, travellers will have to wait up to three days at an approved hotel for their results.

As of Monday, non-essential travellers will be required to show a negative test before entry at the land border with the US.

Everyone has a role to play to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and our number one priority will always be to ensure the safety of Canadians.

We want to remind Canadians that travel restrictions and measures can be amended as necessary and on short notice. We will never hesitate to take action to protect the safety of Canadians.
