The closure of the border between Canada and the United States has been extended for at least another month.
Canada’s Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said today the closure will remain in place until December 21.
“We are extending non-essential travel restrictions with the United States until December 21st, 2020,” Blair tweeted. “Our decisions will continue to be based on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe.”
If you are a foreign national arriving from the United States, to enter Canada, you must prove to the CBSA that you:
- are travelling for a non-discretionary (essential) purpose or are an immediate family member
- are not presenting signs or symptoms of COVID-19
- have a plan to quarantine for 14 days, unless exempted
The Canada-U.S. temporary border restriction continues. All discretionary/optional travel remains prohibited.
Travel to Canada for discretionary reasons (non-essential), such as for tourism, recreation or entertainment is currently prohibited. Unless exempted, if you do not have a non-discretionary (essential) reason to travel to Canada, a border services officer will deny you entry.
