Canada extends international travel ban

 

The Canadian Government once again extended emergency orders that restrict international travel and make mandatory 14-day quarantines for anyone entering the country during the coronavirus pandemic. The orders are extended for at least another month, the government said.

“Our government is extending the existing restrictions on international travel to Canada by one month — until September 30, 2020 — to limit the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in our communities,” said Public Safety Minister Bill Blair in a Tweet sent out Friday afternoon. “Canadian citizens and permanent residents returning to Canada will continue to be subject to strict quarantine measures.”

The ongoing restrictions prohibit all non-essential or discretionary travel to Canada from countries other than the United States. This includes any leisure travel, such as vacation and entertainment travel, for non-Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
