Currently, Canada travel restrictions include travel to Ottawa. Canada has restricted the entry of all foreign nationals. Travelers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people registered under the Indian Act may only enter Canada for essential purposes. Entrance will be denied to people traveling for tourism, sightseeing, recreation, entertainment, social visits or religious functions. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, their immediate family, diplomats, airline crews, and travelers arriving from the United States who are traveling for non-discretionary or non-optional purposes may still enter Canada. Only Toronto Pearson (YYZ), Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau (YUL), Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) are operating international flights. Domestic flights, as well as flights from the United States, some destinations such as Mexico and the Caribbean, and from St. Pierre-et-Miquelon, are currently not affected by this measure. Seasonal agricultural workers, fish/seafood workers, caregivers, temporary foreign workers, international students with valid study permits or approvals for study permits valid from at least March 18, 2020, and permanent resident applicants who received approval before March 18, 2020 who had not yet traveled to Canada, may still enter the country. Other people with special dispensation to enter Canada include French citizens who reside in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, people registered under the Indian Act, visa-exempt refugees and their immediate families, and those with special authorisation from the Canadian government. All travelers on flights to Canada must have a face covering. Travelers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travelers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travelers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travelers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer. North Macedonian passports which expired on March 18, 2020 or later will be considered valid for entry to Canada through July 31, 2020. Visitors transiting through Canada who are not otherwise exempted (for example, by having a valid Canadian visa or a permanent resident card) must obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization.
