Canadians abroad

If you do travel outside Canada, you should expect increased health screening measures at points of entry for international destinations, including airports and land borders. Local authorities may impose control measures suddenly, including movement restrictions such as quarantines. Some foreign governments have implemented special entry and exit restrictions for their territories. Before travelling, verify entry requirements, border closures and flight suspensions with the foreign authorities.

If you are trying to return home and need financial assistance, the Government of Canada has created the COVID-19 Emergency Loan Program for Canadians Abroad. Canadian embassies, high commissions and consulates can provide assistance to Canadians abroad. In case of an emergency, contact Global Affairs Canada 24/7 through its Emergency Watch and Response Centre.
