Travel Advisory - KNOW the Facts Before you Make Travel Plans!

Written by 

March 23, 2013 –To promote health and safety for all Canadians travelling or planning to live abroad, Foreign Trade and International Affairs has created a fabulous, all encompassing and very impressive web platform that provides official information and advice enabling you to make well informed, travel decisions for you and your family.

This is the best 'Travel Advisory' website I have ever come across. It provides a 'think ahead' practicality so you can make safe travel decisions. If you are considering a vacation abroad, I highly recommend you subscribe to this website.

The Canadian Government advises, "No matter where in the world you intend to travel, make sure you check the Travel Advice and Advisories page twice: once when you are planning your trip, and again shortly before you leave. If the region or the country you will be visiting becomes subject to a Travel Advisory, it may affect your travel health insurance or your trip cancellation insurance.

Please click on the links below to view comprehensive information 'Travel' provides on a daily basis:

travel-2Latest Warnings includes information on threats and conditions the Government of Canada considers unsafe for Canadians around the world including protests, natural disasters, health warnings, and other hazards.

Additional detailed information on conditions abroad, including the full list of countries and regions for which Travel Advisories are in effect, can be found on our Country Travel Advice and Advisories page and a full list of Travel Health Notices is available on our Travel Health Notices page.

Country Travel Advice and Advisories includes information on travelling abroad, travel documents, baggage and airport security, registration of Canadians abroad, children, living abroad, resources for travel counsellors, and publications.

Returning to Canada includes information on entering Canada, Customs, U.S. to Canada border wait times, if you get sick after travelling, and immigration for non-Canadian citizens.

Assistance includes information on Embassies and Consulates, Emergency Information and Requests for Emergency Assistance.

Some of the very important and up-to-date information that you will receive on a particular country or city will include:

  • Regional Advisories – for specific areas within that country including road, air and rail traveltravel3
  • Security – political situations, crime, women's safety, demonstrations, transportation, general safety information, sports and leisure activities and emergency services
  • Entry/Exit Requirements – passport, visas, biometrics, screening measures, dual citizenships, port of entry, border crossings, children and travel, health entry requirements and same-sex marriages
  • Health – information on outbreaks and diseases, medical facilities, health tips and recommendations for vaccinations via consultations from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
  • Laws and Culture – local laws you are subject to when travelling to a specific country and information on money and exchange rates
  • Disaster and Climate – regional weather forecasts and disaster areas

Aside from the daily 'Recalls, Health & Safety Alerts', Children's Health and Safety Association will also have 'Travel Advisory' resident on our website which you can access by the click of a button (see below). Please do check with us on a regular basis to receive the latest travel advisory information.

Alternately, subscribe to receive daily travel updates via email from the Canadian Government. Either way, we have you covered.
