As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring the risk of the virus in destinations around the world and providing travel recommendations. To help you make informed decisions and travel safely, the Government of Canada has established official sources of travel information and advice. It is important to consider your need to travel to a certain country, territory, or region based on family or business requirements, knowledge or familiarity with the region, and other factors. Before planning any trip abroad, consult the travel recommendations for the desired destination.
You can see the world at a glance on CDC's color-coded map. All travelers, domestic and international, must continue to comply with all CDC travel requirements. The COVID-19 pandemic is having a large-scale impact on international travel and trade, especially in the aviation sector. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued advice for international travel and trade in relation to the outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new coronavirus in China.
To help you keep up to date, TPG has compiled a list of all advisories (you can also find the full list of travel advisories on the Department of State's website), as well as ALL Level 4 advisories to date. Considerations for implementing a risk-based approach to international travel in the context of COVID-19 include two variants of Omicron and an interim position paper. State, local and territorial governments can establish travel restrictions, including testing requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements upon arrival.

The governments of Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States also provide travel advice.If you haven't completed a series of COVID-19 vaccines, you should continue to avoid non-essential travel to all destinations. If you are going to live or travel to unrest areas despite the travel warning, take the time to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
