In early October, the Canadian government amended travel restrictions for international students allowing all new and returning international students to enter Canada if their Designated Learning Institution (DLI) has an approved COVID-19 readiness plan in place. In addition to staying up-to-date on the latest news from IRCC, travelling to Canada to study during the pandemic requires extra preparation.
You’ve got your study permit in hand and your flight booked: are you ready to travel? What should you prepare for before you leave? Do you have a quarantine plan? (hint: you’ll need one) You can take care of things like getting a SIN number and a phone plan, opening your bank account during that time.
