Canada has extended travel restrictions until May 21, 2021 for travellers of all countries, including the U.S.
The announcement was made by Canada’s Public Safety minister Bill Blair via Twitter.
International flights continue to be accepted through only four Canadian airports: Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary.
Incoming travellers who are exempt from the travel restrictions are required to show a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before coming to Canada. They are also required to take another test upon arrival. Travellers must quarantine in a government-approved hotel for three days while they wait for their results.
Quarantine requirements have also been extended. All travellers to Canada are required to quarantine for 14 days. The three day government-mandated hotel stay can count towards your quarantine period. Only essential travellers do not have to quarantine. This includes emergency service providers, truck drivers, some technicians or specialists, those living in a trans-border community and those who regularly cross the border to work.
