What are the current travel restrictions for Québec City?

Currently, Canada travel restrictions include travel to Québec City. 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. See the Transport Canada website for more information. If you are planning to travel to Québec City at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.

How to get around in Québec City?

The best way to get around Québec City is on foot. Within the walls of Old Québec, almost all of the attractions are within walking distance. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as the area is hilly and many of the streets are cobbled. If you get tired, the city’s Métrobus will carry you around the historic area on 4 different routes. Don’t miss taking a ride on the funicular, a steep railway connecting Haute-Ville (Upper Town) and Basse-Ville (Lower Town). If you have rented a car, it may be advisable to park it while in the city, the narrow busy streets can be difficult to navigate, and parking is scarce. Save your car for trips outside the downtown area.

Buses

Québec City’s RTC Metrobus offers a break for tired feet and respite from the cold if you visit during the winter. The 4 routes run throughout Old Québec City, stopping near many of the most popular attractions. The fare is $2.90 CAD, or you may purchase a day pass, an unlimited weekend pass, or a 5-day pass. Buses stop every 10 to 15 minutes.

Taxis

Taxis are plentiful in the city and a good option for Québec City transportation. You can hail one on the street, but you may have better luck if you head to a designated taxi stand. The meter starts at $3.59 CAD, and each extra 0.6 mile costs $1.76 CAD.


What are the visa and passport requirements when flying to Québec City?

Citizens of the United States do not need a visa to enter Canada, but need to show proof of citizenship or identity, both of which can be done by showing your passport. For foreign nationals, please check the Government of Canada website.

Things to do and places of interest in Québec City

This hilltop city sits on a rocky spur alongside the St. Lawrence river. Old Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the only fortified city north of Mexico. Here are some sights to see when you travel to Québec City.

  • Consider staying at, or at least visiting the iconic Hotel Frontenac. This 1894-dated hotel was built by the Canadian Pacific Railway and epitomizes the term ‘grand’. It’s vantage point above the Quartier Petit-Champlain and Basse-Ville provides excellent views of the St. Lawrence River.
  • Wander through a few of the city’s magnificent museums, such as the Musée des Ursulines de Québec, Morrin Centre, The Fort Museum, the Musée du Monastère des Augustines, the Place Royal Museum and the Musée de la Civilisation.
  • Stroll around the scenic Quartier Petit-Champlain. This historic, pedestrian-only neighborhood was once the capital of New France, and now contains fine restaurants and artisan boutiques.
  • Cross the St. Lawrence river aboard the Québec-Levis Ferry to view the city’s picturesque skyline. You can find the ferry dock in Lower Town, a short walk from the Quartier Petit-Champlain and Place Royale.
  • History buffs should visit the Plains of Abraham, the site of a fierce battle in 1759 when the British General Wolfe won Québec City from French General Montcalm.
  • During late January and into February, the city celebrates the winter season with the Carnaval de Québec. First held in 1894, Carnaval features dog sled races, canoe races on the (often frozen) St. Lawrence River, skating, sledding, family oriented games, dancing, and parades.

Tips and tricks for visiting Québec City

If you visit during the winter, be prepared! The temperatures can plummet to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, and if you aren’t dressed properly for it, frostbite is a real danger.

The Québecois speak French and are fiercely proud of their language. Almost all are willing and able to converse with you in English, but any effort on your part to use even a smattering of French will be warmly welcomed.
