Currently, Canada travel restrictions include travel to Vancouver. Canada has restricted the entry of all foreign nationals. Travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people registered under the Indian Act may only enter Canada for essential purposes. Entrance will be denied to people travelling for tourism, sightseeing, recreation, entertainment, social visits or religious functions. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, their immediate family members, diplomats, airline crews, and travellers arriving from the United States who are travelling for non-discretionary or non-optional purposes may still enter Canada. Seasonal agricultural workers, fish/seafood workers, caregivers, temporary foreign workers, international students with valid study permits or approvals for study permits valid from at least 18 March 2020, and permanent resident applicants who received approval before 18 March 2020 who had not yet travelled to Canada, may still enter the country. Other people with special dispensation to enter Canada include French citizens who reside in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, people registered under the Indian Act, visa-exempt refugees and their immediate families, and those with special authorisation from the Canadian government. Travellers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travellers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travellers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travellers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer. If you are planning to travel to Vancouver at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
