Travel Safety Advice

Travel Advice and Advisories provide Canadians with up-to-date advice on staying safe and healthy abroad.

For the latest travel advice, including security and local laws, plus passport and visa information check https://travel.gc.ca/ and follow Facebook.com/travelGoC and  @TravelGoC on Twitter.

Their advice can change without warning so check regularly for updates.

Exodus policy on travel advice

Exodus monitors travel advice closely for every country we visit, and we follow their advice to the letter. Should the advice be to avoid non-essential travel to an area of a country we planned to visit, we will ensure itineraries are changed and travelers are contacted.

Should the advice change to recommend against travel to a whole country, we will not operate the tour and will instead offer all travelers the chance to transfer to an alternative tour or request a full refund.

Where the advice may be temporary and we have tours due to operate, we will communicate regularly with travelers who are booked to travel about the options available.

 Before you depart

  • Take out appropriate travel insurance before travelling and make sure it covers you for all the activities you want to do.
  • Learn about the laws, customs and entry requirements of the country you’re visiting and understand how they differ from home, check https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
  • Check your passport is valid, fill out the emergency details, look after it while travelling and keep it in a safe place. Make sure you have all necessary visas.
  • Make copies or take pictures of important travel documents and store them using a secure data storage site.
  • Research vaccinations or any other medical requirements for your destination and, if necessary, visit a travel health clinic before you travel. For medical advice visit https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/health-safety/vaccines
