Travel watch update, restrictions and current global requirements:

International travel destinations to which safe travel is allowed changes frequently; therefore, passengers leaving Canada should double-check their travel plans with the U.S. Embassy or the Canadian Government, as well as their preferred airline.

The Canadian government has strongly discouraged non-essential travel.  However, passengers who must travel or are planning a future trip later this year and in 2022 should seek the advice of a certified travel agent.

Tanzania: Open to Americans and Canadians with restrictions. All travellers require a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours before arrival. Travellers arriving from countries with many COVID-19 cases will be required to take a rapid test upon arrival.

Kenya: Open to Americans and Canadians with restrictions. All travellers require a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 96 hours before arrival in Kenya and must complete a form on the plane. Curfew is currently in effect from 10 pm to 4 am daily.

UAE: Open to Americans and Canadians with restrictions.

South Africa: There is a current suspension of entry for foreign nationals transiting through South Africa in the last 14 days, including resident visa holders.

Important Note for Returning U.S. and Canadian Passengers:

All American passengers over the age of 2 must provide one of the following before boarding their flight back into the U.S.:

  • A negative COVID-19 test result (PCR or Antigen) taken within 3-days before boarding.

All passengers who contracted Covid-19 must carry documentation of having recovered fully from COVID-19; approved to travel by a doctor.

Canada: All Canadian passengers over the age of 5 years must provide a negative COVID-19 test result (PCR or LAMP) taken within 72-hours before boarding their flight into Canada. Returning passengers will also be tested for COVID-19 on arrival and will be required to stay in a designated hotel for three nights at their own expense until the test result is obtained. Those testing positive will be asked to quarantine in a government facility for 14 days. Passengers who test negative will be required to quarantine for 14 days at their accommodation. Travellers without a satisfactory place to isolate themselves will be asked to quarantine at a designated facility.
