To protect Canadians from the outbreak of COVID-19, the Prime Minister announced travel restrictions that limit travel to Canada. Until further notice, most foreign nationals cannot travel to Canada, even if they have a valid visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA).
These restrictions stop most non-essential (discretionary) travel to Canada.
You can travel to and enter Canada if you’re a :
- Canadian citizen
- dual Canadian citizen with a
- valid Canadian passport or
- special authorization
- permanent resident of Canada
- person registered under Canada’s Indian Act
- protected person
- Foreign nationals, including United States (US) citizens, can travel to Canada only if they’re eligible.
