Travellers will need to check their passport before they head to a Canadian tourist destination, as the government has revised the rules for visiting the country.
The new rules, published by Tourism Canada on Wednesday, require travellers to show the country’s consulate in the country to confirm they have a passport.
“You will need your passport and the country of citizenship on file to get in and you can check this in your hotel or other lodging facility,” the department said.
“It will be a requirement to show your passport when entering Canada.”
The new guidelines mean that travellers arriving in Canada will need a passport, a valid Canada Passport Card, and a valid travel document to enter Canada, even if they’ve never visited the country before.
The changes were announced at a time when tourism is booming in Corsica, where many of the countrys most famous attractions are located.
The move comes as Canadian authorities are facing criticism for not enforcing a ban on the use of Airbnb, which has seen its popularity soar in recent years.
The company has also faced protests from residents in Corsican communities who say it’s not safe for them to live in the city.
“The government is making some very big changes to Canada Passports and Travel Documents, which will be enforced by Canada Passengers.
It is very concerning that we are now required to show our passports to enter the country,” the tourism ministry said in a statement.
“We are not going to make these changes for the benefit of tourists.
We will continue to enforce these rules and take steps to protect the privacy of Canadians.
We encourage people to check with their local immigration department to ensure they are fully compliant with the rules.”
In the past, visitors to Canada had to show their passports when they visited foreign countries.
This summer, the government rolled out new rules for travellers to the US and other parts of Europe, which means the US can no longer require travellers from those countries to prove they are legal residents before they can fly to the country, or book an international flight.
