It is also important to determine what vaccinations, if any, you will need well ahead of your departure as you may be refused entry to a foreign country if you do not have the appropriate vaccination certificate or cannot show proof of immunization.

Be sure to verify the requirement again before you leave as health regulations can change with little notice and some vaccines take time to be effective or require multiple injections.

For specific foreign country entry requirements and a directory of Canadian embassies and consular missions in most countries around the world, consult Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada at

For further travel health information, contact your doctor, travel medical clinic, municipal/provincial/territorial department of health, or the Public Health Agency of Canada at
