  • are asymptomatic (not feeling any symptoms of COVID or other illnesses)
  • take the arrival COVID test (if selected for random arrival testing)
  • have completed your vaccine regiment at least 14 days before entering Canada
  • have entered your proof documentation on Arrive Can, and it has been accepted
  • have a complete 14-day quarantine plan (if applicable)

Check if you qualify for an exemption

VERY IMPORTANT

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WHO ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE AND ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED MUST HAVE A QUARANTINE PLAN IN ORDER FOR THEM TO ENTER CANADA.

NOT HAVING A QUARANTINE PLAN MAY RESULT IN YOU BEING DENIED ENTRY TO CANADA AND RETURNED TO YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
