Essential travel 2021-22
Posted date : Sep 16, 2021.
My husband and I have owned homes (three) in Florida since 1992, and have spent every winter there, except for last year.
We are beginning to have serious concerns about border openings for the coming season and are wondering if there could be any change to the “essential travel” condition, which could include us as concerned homeowners with a sizable investment in the U.S., on which we continue to pay property taxes.
We MUST get back to that home this year…do you have any sense of whether this type of exception will be considered if the “non-essential ban ” is still in force?
I know that we are not alone…this home is a large part of our estate and we feel that it essential to be sure that it is not losing value as we speak. It has now been empty for 18 months.
I hope to hear something positive on this subject in the near future. It is very stressful for all of us Canadian snowbirds (especially those who are homeowners).
Thank you for your continued support.
Ed.: I believe that there is no possibility of the non-essential travel ban being removed any time soon. Neither government cares about you and me and our minor problems (major to us, of course). This is raw, bare-knuckle politics at its worst, prior to elections. Your only option is to get on a plane and go, and rent a car in the U.S. This works!
