CBSA travel tips for Lunar New Year


OTTAWA, Jan. 24, 2020 /CNW/ - The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) would like to remind all travellers of the import requirements and cross-border regulations ahead of the Lunar New Year on January 25.

Certain food products and delicacies from other countries may not be permitted in Canada. In 2019, border services officers seized prohibited goods from Asia including:

The CBSA strongly recommends that you consult the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website before bringing any food, plant, and animal products into Canada.

"Have you been to Wuhan, China in the past 14 days?"

Out of an abundance of caution and to mitigate the risk of introduction of the novel coronavirus into Canada, in the coming days, all international travellers arriving at the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver international airports will be asked an additional screening question to help identify those who may have visited Wuhan.

Travellers who have visited Wuhan will be subject to additional screening measures. Travellers experiencing flu-like symptoms will be referred for further examination by a public health officer. All others will be provided an information handout.

To kick off the Year of the Rat, the CBSA has some tips to make your border process a smooth and quick experience:

The best thing you can do is to simply be open and honest with the border services officer. If you are not sure about what to declare, do not hesitate to ask. The officers are there to help you.

The CBSA wishes everyone a safe and happy Lunar New Year! Gung Hay Fat Choy!
