How the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is affecting immigration, refugees, citizenship and passport services
To protect Canadians from the outbreak of COVID 19, the Prime Minister announced travel restrictions that will limit travel to Canada. Until further notice, most people cannot travel to Canada, even if they have a valid visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA).
These restrictions stop all non-essential travel to Canada by foreign nationals, but there are some exemptions. Some people may still be able to travel to Canada by air if they’re exempt from the travel restrictions and are coming for an essential purpose.
