We only recommend booking your flight if you meet the requirements to be able to travel to Canada (see above). If you have not received final approval of your study permit application, you should not book flights.
We ask that you please contact our office so we can review your quarantine plan/proof of vaccination and provide a support letter before you make plans to travel to Canada.
We would advise that you do not travel more than 4 weeks prior to the start of your classes in Spring 2022 term if you are fully vaccinated with a Government of Canada approved vaccine as there is a possibility that a Border Services officer may not allow you entry into Canada if you are travelling months prior to the start of your classes.
If you are not fully vaccinated with a Government of Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine, we recommend that you plan to arrive in Canada around 8 - 9 weeks before the start of your classes (on or before November 10) to allow for enough time for you to quarantine and get both doses of Canada-approved vaccination at least 14 days before you will need to access Ulethbridge campus. Please make sure you have a clear explanation of your reasons to travel early to Canada, so you can present it to the Canada Border Services Officer along with your quarantine plan.
If you are not fully vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine that is approved in Canada, and have questions about your travel, please contact the International Student Advisors for assistance in planning when to travel to Canada.
If you have further questions on travelling to Canada during summer, you may call the Canada Border Service Agency for assistance. When calling, please ask the Border Service Officer to provide you their name and badge number and take detailed notes of your conversation with the officer. It is important to note that the final decision regarding your eligibility to enter Canada is made by the Border Officer you will meet when you enter Canada at the airport or land border.
