Canadian Traveler Information
Passport & Visa
Have a valid Canadian passport for all trips outside Canada. A passport is the only reliable and universally accepted identification document, and it proves that you have a right to return to Canada. Some countries do not require a passport for entry but do require photographic identification (such as a driver’s license) as well as proof of Canadian citizenship (such as a birth certificate or citizenship card). It is possible that a country might also require a Visa. However, this varies from country to country.

Health Safety Requirements
Be aware of any health safety requirements for foreign travel. In case of local health concerns, rigid health screening procedures or quarantines may be imposed.
Be patient and follow orders of security officials at the pre-board screening checkpoint at all times. Avoid comments about security measures that could be misinterpreted and cause undue problems.
