International students: Travel restrictions and exemptions

Source: Visitors, foreign workers and students - Travel restrictions in Canada – Travel.gc.ca

To be able to enter Canada as a student, you must meet two requirements:

  1. You must have a valid study permit or a letter of introduction that shows you were approved for a study permit.
  2. You must be attending a designated learning institution (DLI) with a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by its province or territory.

You can only enter Canada if you have all of the required documents and your DLI is on the approved list.

As a student, you will not be allowed to enter Canada if:

  • your study program has been cancelled or suspended.
  • you’re entering Canada for any reason other than to study.
