Canada will close the border for at least another month until July 31 in an effort to curb the Covid-19 epidemic instead of June 30 as originally expected.
The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) said that only tourists with essential reasons will be exempted and immediate family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents are allowed to come to Canada. All people who come to Canada during this period still have to comply with the 14-day quarantine rule.
Last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada would not rush to reopen the border. Canada and the United States will also continue to restrict cross-border travel at least until July 21. This temporary order is one of Canada's measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. In recent days, Canada has recorded new cases of Covid-19 infections falling to 200 or less per day.
Visas, student visas and Canadian visas are processed online from July 1
As of July 1, Canada will process all visa applications via online submission including transit visas and electronic travel authorization (eTAs). Continuing processing of online travel visa applications will help IRCC ensure future processing times and help people get around quickly when border bans are lifted. However, due to current travel restrictions, the applicant should keep in mind that even if Canada accepts an application for a tourist visa or eTA, you cannot travel to Canada at this time.
