The federal government is reimposing some visa requirements on Mexican nationals visiting Canada, a senior government source tells Radio-Canada.

The new rules will take effect on 11:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.

Quebec Premier François Legault has been calling on the federal government to do more to slow the influx of asylum seekers into his province. Last week, he said Ottawa should bring back the visa requirement for Mexican travellers.

“The possibility of entering Canada from Mexico without a visa certainly explains part of the influx of asylum seekers,” the premier wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
