Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Changes to travel-related programs and services
COVID-19: Latest update
As of , at 11:59 pm ET, you must meet the new testing and quarantine requirements when coming to Canada.
Use the checklist that applies to you:
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) offers a number of programs and services intended to help travellers save time at the border. In response to COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended or reduced some of these programs and services.
Temporary service reductions
The CBSA has implemented temporary service changes that will remain in effect until further notice. Visit the Directory of CBSA Offices and Services for more information.
Remote Area Border Crossing Program
The Remote Area Border Crossing Program is temporarily suspended.
NEXUS and FAST enrollment centres remain temporarily closed as long as COVID-19 border restrictions are in place.
Existing NEXUS and FAST members who renew their membership before the expiry date on their card will retain their membership privileges. Therefore, please renew your membership before it expires to avoid losing your privileges.
We encourage new applicants to wait to submit their applications until enrollment centres re-open.
Temporary lane closures at NEXUS land ports of entry have been implemented until further notice.
The CBSA has extended the validity of expired and expiring memberships for the following programs:
- Pilot Project for Travellers in Remote Areas (Quebec)
- Commercial Driver Registration Program
The CBSA continues to accept applications and renewal requests for these programs. However, there are significant processing delays.
