While we all are busy dreaming of visiting new countries once the travel restrictions are removed, there are constant change of rules and regulations coming in from all around the world. Canada is no different in this case.
The latest travel advisory from Canada suggests that the country has banned international tourists from coming in until 31st October,2020. According to Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, Bill Bair, the country is going to close the incoming of international tourists until 31st October.
The rule also includes the United States. The closure of Canadian borders is extended to all countries by land, air or sea. However, if you are a citizen of Canada, you can definitely come into Canada but you would have to be in a mandatory 14-day self quarantine.
Canada has decided to shut down its borders after a second wave has affected parts of the country.
Only certain people such as citizens and permanent residents; international students with valid permit to study or those who have been approved for a study permit or those who have work permits for non-discretionary and non-optional reasons can travel to Canada.
Permanent residents who were approved for residency before March 18, 2020 and have not been able to travel yet, can visit the country. Additionally, any other groups of people who have been exempted by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
