Canada ends entry requirements effective 1 October 2022


We are happy to let our arriving students know that the Government of Canada announced the removal of all COVID-19 entry restrictions, as well as testing, quarantine, and isolation requirements for anyone entering Canada, effective October 1, 2022.

Effective October 1, 2022, all travellers, regardless of citizenship, will no longer have to:

  • submit public health information through the ArriveCAN app or website;
  • provide proof of vaccination;
  • undergo pre- or on-arrival testing;
  • carry out COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation;
  • monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada.

Even though wearing a mask is no longer mandatory, we would still advise students to wear a face mask on their journey. Also, if you show COVID-19 symptoms, you should not travel.
