February 25, 2021

Updates have been made to the COVID-19 travel restriction instructions to align with the intent of the extended family member exemption by providing an alternative statutory declaration form for minors (under the age of 18) wishing to reunite with their extended family members. The new form must be used by the minor’s parent to solemnly declare the relationship between the parent, child and extended family member abroad.
