We previously discussed the restrictions that Canada has imposed on international travellers (Travel Restrictions), in order to limit the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Since that time, there have been several additional developments:
- The Government of Canada has repealed and reissued its two Orders-in-Council relating to the Travel Restrictions.
- Transport Canada has repealed and reissued its initial Interim Order, which applies to the boarding of individuals travelling to Canada by air.
- Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued Program Delivery Instructions (PDIs), which further clarify how the Travel Restrictions will be applied; and
- The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration has issued Ministerial Instructions, which restrict/suspend certain immigration processing for a period of 21 days.
