When traveling internationally there are many factors to consider to ensure that you have a safe and successful trip. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to:
- current political conditions of the country
- the environmental conditions (i.e. weather)
- the crime rate in the area
- health conditions including common diseases or parasites
You should reference the Government of Canada's Travel Website to obtain up-to-date risk level for the country you will be traveling to. In the event that the risk level is "Exercise a high degree of caution," or higher you must contact Risk and Insurance Services prior to departure as coverage may not apply.
