Discover the new Air Canada tool: Ready to Travel

To the point

Details on Air Canada's tool to help travelers navigate travel requirements.

Many of us are planning our next trip. However, with the fast-changing situation, it becomes tough to keep up with all the announcements and navigate our way through when looking at the requirements for entry or movement in the country we want to visit.

In this context, Air Canada has deployed a new “Ready to Travel” portal to help travellers plan and prepare for their upcoming trips.

The portal provides information such as necessary travel documents, COVID-19 screening requirements, and travel restrictions for any destination in the world.

Here is the type of information found:

  • Is it possible to travel to this country?

  • Is a quarantine required upon arrival in the country?

At each link, you will access details such as the type of COVID-19 test that is accepted.

2- Visa requirements

It is not uncommon for a country to require a visa to enter its territory, for example, for French nationals who come to spend holidays in Canada and need an electronic travel authorization (ETA).
