British Nationals In Canada: Returning To The UK

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises British people travelling abroad to return to the UK now, if commercial flights are still available.

International travel is becoming very limited as air routes close, land borders close and new restrictions are put in place that prevent flights from leaving.

If you’re travelling in Canada, you should:

contact your airline or travel company now

keep up-to-date with FCO travel advice
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus

and travel advice for Canada
https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/canada

The FCO is working with airlines to keep routes open, and calling for international action to keep routes open to enable British people to return home on commercial flights. We are also working around the clock to support those British travellers who are already finding difficulties to come back to the UK.

In Canada, only the following airports are operating international flights:

Toronto Pearson (YYZ)

Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau (YUL)

Calgary International Airport (YYC)

Vancouver International Airport (YVR)
