SUBJECT: Travel Advisory
With the gradual resumption of normal business travel, employees are advised to take the following steps:
- Carry the telephone numbers and addresses of Canadian missions closest to the location of travel, when travelling outside
Canada. Missions include Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates.
- Read the travel advisories published by DFAIT.
- Register with the Canadian mission closest to the location of travel when travelling to countries that may be affected as a
result of recent events. Registration involves leaving a copy of your itinerary and coordinates.
- Obtain a government credit card if you do not have one. If your travel is disrupted, a government credit card would provide
funding to cover additional travel costs. Those employees who already have a credit card should ensure that their line of credit is
clear, in order to have funds available for emergencies.
