    Before arriving in Canada

    International students arriving in Canada must be able to provide the following detailed information:

    • Who will be picking you up from the airport
    • Where you will be staying and who you will be staying with during the mandatory 14 day self-isolation period
    • How you plan to support yourself during the mandatory 14 day self-isolation period (e.g. who will deliver food during isolation)

    Please Note: Travellers who are unable to demonstrate an adequate 14 day self-isolation plan may be denied entry into Canada or placed in a designated facility for 14 days at their own expense. Travellers should budget approximately $2,400 to $3,000 CAD to support themselves during this isolation period.

    What does it mean to self-isolate?

    Under self-isolation, you must stay at home, avoid public places, and avoid contact with other people. Here are some examples of activities you are not permitted to do under self-isolation:

    • You cannot use public transportation such as taxis, buses or subways
    • You cannot go to restaurants or grocery stores - you will need someone to deliver food to you
    • You cannot go to shops - this may impact students' ability to purchase a cell phone or SIM (for example)
    • You cannot go to work, school or any other public places
    • You cannot look for a job
    How should students prepare?

    Self-isolation requires preparation.

    Student should reach out to family and friends in Canada before they arrive to ensure they have the necessary support in place for when they arrive. 

    Upon arriving in Canada

    After arriving in Canada, students are required to:

    • Provide detailed information about your 14 day self-isolation plan using the ArriveCan mobile app or a paper form at the point of entry.
    • Undergo health screening by a border services officer or quarantine officer
    • Abide by all instructions given at the point of entry - violating any of these instructions provided when you enter Canada is an offense under the Quarantine Act and could lead to imprisonment for up to three years and/or fines of up to $1 million - it is extremely important to follow these instructions
