The list of international travel destinations that you can safely travel to is ever-changing, so all outbound passengers should check with the U.S. Embassy or Canadian Government and their preferred airline before finalizing travel plans. And while the Government of Canada has strongly advised against non-essential travel, our Destination Experts are happy to help you craft trips for your departure later in the year and into 2022.
