Where Canadians Can Travel

- Latest Travel Restrictions for Canadian Tourists -

Last update: 9/7/2021

Canadians can travel to 102 countries right now. However, travel restrictions for Canadian tourists depend on the destination.

As of today, Canadians can travel to 24 countries without COVID-19 restrictions. While Canadian travelers are only required to present pre-trip COVID test results to travel to 54 countries, Canadians are subject to mandatory quarantine for 24 other international destinations.

Although, in this guide, you will learn where Canadians can travel now, bear in mind that the Public Health Agency of Canada advises against traveling unless it is strictly necessary.

In addition to the travel restrictions for Canadian travelers that you will find in this guide, which we update daily, I recommend checking the Government of Canada website if you want to know the safest countries for Canadian travelers.

On the following map of countries open to Canadian tourists, you will find all the places Canadians can travel to right now.

Where can Canadians travel

We’ve sorted the countries Canadians can travel to by entry requirements.

I’d like to point out that it’s essential to have travel insurance that covers COVID-19, whether or not it’s an entry requirement for your destination (although many countries already include it in their entry requirements).

Also, these new COVID-19 entry restrictions do not exempt travelers from needing a valid tourist visa if it was already required before the pandemic. You can check whether you need a visa to travel below.

Additionally, keep in mind that some countries may go into lockdown after opening their borders to tourism. We have written specific guides for all the places Canadians can travel to, where you can find out the current situation in the country, if there is a lockdown or curfew mandates in place, and if hotels, restaurants, and attractions are open to tourism.

Countries Canadians can travel to

Below, you can see where Canadians can travel to, as well as entry requirements for Canadian travelers and important information to consider.

Albania

If you’re experiencing wanderlust, head to Albania, one of the many places Canadian tourists can travel to.

However, visitors will need to have a health screening at the Albanian airport.
