New Canada Travel Restrictions Through April 30

Canada has announced new travel restrictions to fight the spread of the Covid-19 variants in the country. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the new policies:

  • Flights to Mexico and the Caribbean are suspended starting Sunday, January 31 through April 30, 2021
  • The Canadian government will impose mandatory COVID-19 testing for new international arrivals at the Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver airports, which are the only places authorized to accept overseas flights as of February 1, in addition to the already-in-place pre-boarding federal law for a negative COVID-19 test
  • Anyone arriving in Canada from abroad will be required to wait for the results of their airport COVID test for up to three days at a supervised hotel, at their own expense
  • After the second test, travellers will have to wait three days at a designated hotel for their test result; If the traveller’s second test is negative, they can complete their 14-day quarantine at home

Penalties for breaking the travel rules under the Quarantine Act are as high as $750,000 or six months in jail.

Essential Traveller Exemptions

Traveller exemptions remain in effect for essential workers and other qualified travellers Including:

  • Trade and commerce
  • Temporary Foreign Workers
  • Vital Health-Care Workers
  • Study
  • Canada is allowing some immediate family members to reunite
  • And other exceptions

The Atlantic provinces and Arctic territory authorities have barred entry from the rest of Canada except for work, school or other essential reasons.
