The federal government is now appealing to foreign nationals and asking them to cancel any upcoming vacations in Canada that they may have planned.

In a statement about the country’s updated travel restrictions, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) pleaded with residents of other countries to “postpone or cancel travel plans to Canada.”

Their advice comes despite travel restrictions preventing foreign nationals from flying into Canada for discretionary purposes right now.

While these limitations are set to end on February 21, the government’s latest advice suggests that restrictions will be extended once again.

Those who have been granted an exemption to enter Canada will now be required to follow the updated protocol, including taking a second COVID-19 test upon arrival in the country.

Government officials, including the prime minister, have also pleaded with Canadians to cancel all upcoming vacations of their own, both within Canada and abroad.

This comes as officials have announced details related to Canada’s new travel rules, including proposed start-dates for mandatory hotel quarantine and COVID-19 testing upon arrival in the airport.
