A guide to the world’s travel guidelines for international travellers, and how to make the most of them.
By John TravoltaThe new edition of the CDC Travel Guidelines, the official guide to international travel restrictions in Canada, is available here, and the latest edition is here.
Canada is currently under a major travel alert, and is expected to tighten its travel restrictions as early as this week.
The Canadian Government has issued the following travel advisories:Cannot travel to any destination in Canada without a valid passport, valid travel visa or travel permit.
Travel is not permitted from the Canadian mainland to any other province, territory or jurisdiction outside Canada.
Travel must be planned in advance, and must not be delayed.
Cannot enter Canada without obtaining a visa or permit.
The Canadian government has been issuing warnings about the threat of terrorism for the past few months, and this is a major step forward in terms of preventing this threat from spreading to Canada.
It’s also important to note that the current travel advisory is not a travel warning, and it’s not mandatory to do anything in order to travel, although many Canadians are willing to do so.
The government is also now issuing the following guidance to visitors:Do not travel to places where there is a high risk of terrorist attacks, violence or crime.
