Travel exemptions and restrictions for international students.
To be able to enter Canada as a student, you must meet 2 requirements:
- You must have a valid study permit or a letter of introduction that shows you were approved for a study permit.
- You must be attending a designated learning institution (DLI) with a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by its province or territory.
You must meet these 2 requirements whether you’re studying for 6 months or less or you’re enrolled in a longer study program.
If you’re already studying in Canada and you leave, you won’t be able to return to Canada if your DLI isn’t on the approved list.
Your travel to Canada may be considered essential (non-discretionary) if you have all of the required documents and your DLI is on the approved list.
