Restrictions hit Canada outbound medical travel


Canada’s ban extension gives no exemption for US citizens who may have wanted or needed to go across the border for treatment, although it does not affect the rules in place for ground travel between Canada and the U.S.

Canadian citizens and permanent residents returning to Canada will continue to be subject to strict quarantine measures. This means that if Canadians go to Cuba, the Caymans, USA or Mexico for medical treatment, they have to quarantine on their return.

The strict quarantine regulations for international travel have been in place since March 25 this year. The restrictions were enacted as an emergency order under Canada’s Quarantine Act to help contain Covid-19. The Act mandates that anyone with an underlying medical condition is not allowed in.
