The diplomatic and consular representations in Canada ask for your understanding that due to the particular dynamics of the situation and the large number of inquiries we can only provide you with general Information on our website.

German nationals are currently no longer able to enter Canada. Departure is still possible provided there are still flight connections. You can find more information on entry requirements at https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html

Unfortunately, at the moment we can only advise you to observe the further development and, if possible, to leave the Country.

The diplomatic missions abroad would be grateful if, in view of the massive increase in the number of calls, you would refrain from contacting the missions with a request for information about flight connections, since the missions abroad cannot provide any specific information.

The federal government has announced a return campaign for German tourists in particularly affected areas. Canada is currently NOT one of those particularly affected areas. The Federal Foreign Office therefore expressly advises, wherever possible, to make the return trip independently and not to rely on any return trip action.

The Federal Foreign Office has set up a website for possible return travel campaigns. Please register there if you are no longer able to return to Germany.

Please Register in the crisis preparedness list of the Federal Foreign Office “ELEFAND”: Because of the currently extremely high use of the “ELEFAND” list, technical overload disruptions can currently occur during registration. The embassy cannot do the registration for you. If the system is overloaded, please try to reload the page later.

Please note: If you are currently in Canada in self-isolation, you must completely end this self-isolation before you can start the return journey!

In emergencies that cannot be postponed, you can reach the foreign missions via the on-call emergency service even outside business hours. Please note that the on-call service does not answer any questions that do not relate to an emergency.

Please also note that the diplomatic missions abroad cannot provide financial aid for those affected by travel restrictions.
