International Students Are Allowed Back Into Canada Now But There Are Requirements

Let the learning begin.
Trending Senior Staff Writer

The time has finally come! Canada is letting people back into the country again for educational purposes but there are requirements students need to meet first.

Even though Canada has an international travel ban in place, international students are being exempted from that border restriction.

To be able to come into the country, students need to have a valid study permit or letter of introduction that shows they were approved for a study permit and be attending a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) that has an approved COVID-19 readiness plan in place.

October 20 International students started to be allowed back into Canada

Back in July, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada told international students to not try and come into the country just yet.

However, now people can come back to Canada for educational purposes as of October 20.

At the border, officers will assess their reason for travelling to Canada, their ability to immediately quarantine for 14 days and if they either have time to quarantine before they physically attend classes or can study online during those 14 days.

Students need to bring a valid study permit or letter of introduction, a valid letter of acceptance from a DLI that has an approved plan and proof that they have enough money to support themselves.

There's a list of DLIs with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan that students can check online.
