Traveler's Checklist

Doing these essential things before you leave Canada will help ensure a safe trip.

1. PASSPORT

Have a valid Canadian passport. Some countries require that your passport be valid for six months beyond your date of entry. If your passport is due to expire within six months of your departure from Canada, check the Country Travel Report for your destination to establish whether the six-month rule applies. Provide next of kin information on the last page of your passport application. Carry a photocopy of the identification page of your passport and keep it separate from your passport; also leave a copy of it at home. For information on how to obtain a Canadian passport, contact your nearest Passport Office.

2. VISA

Verify whether your destination country or countries require a visa for entry. Make sure you have any visas you need. Find out whether you or any members of your family are considered nationals of the country you plan to visit. This information is available in the Country Travel Reports section of this site. If a visa is required, obtain it before you leave Canada. To find out whether you will need a visa, check with the Foreign Government Office in Canada.

3. TRAVEL AND SUPPLEMENTAL MEDICAL INSURANCE

Buy the most medical and travel insurance that you can afford. Arrange supplementary health insurance and travel insurance. Carry proof of insurance coverage and give a copy to someone at home. DO NOT leave Canada without supplementary medical insurance. Ask your travel agent, your financial institution or your physician for options.

4. CANADIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICES ABROAD

Know the address of the nearest Canadian government office in your destination country.

5. ITINERARY

Provide a relative or friend with a detailed copy of your itinerary. If there are changes while you are abroad, make sure that they are informed of the changes.

6. MONEY ISSUES

Before you leave Canada, make arrangements for how you'll get additional funds if needed. Foreign travel is often more expensive than people plan for. Plan and budget. Keep the original receipts for any purchases you make, as well as your hotel bill, rental car agreement and any medical bills.

7. YOUR DESTINATION

Do your research. Before you leave, learn about the country you plan to visit. Consult the Country Travel Report on your destination. Have any vaccinations required.
