Institutional Plan COVID-19 for International Students


Effective August 9, international students will no longer be required to stay in a hotel authorized by the Government upon arrival in the country. In addition, travellers who have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days prior to entering Canada will no longer be required to be tested, unless they are randomly selected at the border. They will need to have provided their information to ArriveCAN prior to boarding the plane to Canada.

From July 5 to August 9, COVID-19 fully vaccinated travelers entering Canada may be eligible for certain exemptions from quarantine, hotel stopover and day-8 testing requirement if they meet specific conditions.

Entry requirements for the fully vaccinated exemption :
- Pre-entry test required
- Quarantine plan in case you don’t get the exemption
- Arrival test at the Montréal airport (register in advance)
- Proof of vaccination (using ArriveCAN)

Fully vaccinated travellers who arrived before 12:01 a.m. EDT on July 5, aren’t eligible for these exemptions.

Requirements for NON VACCINATED travellers entering Canada

- Be eligible to enter Canada
- Register for ArriveCAN and submit :
   - The negative result of a pre-entry COVID-19 test, done at most 72 hours before your departure
    - Your quarantine plan
