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 in Canada;
  • undergo health checks for travel on air and rail; or
  • wear masks on planes and trains.

The Government of Canada advises that individuals should not travel if they have COVID-19 symptoms. If symptoms arise during travel, please inform an attendant or border services officials upon arrival. Individuals are encouraged to review the travel health notices at travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories for more information on safe travel.

MITT students travelling to Canada must still meet the entry requirements under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and provide appropriate travel and immigration documentation as necessary. For example, students will still be required to carry the IRCC Port of Entry (POE) Letter of Introduction that confirms study permit approval, a valid entry visa, and the MITT Letter of Acceptance.

Students travelling to Canada can continue to use the optional Advance Declaration feature in ArriveCAN to save time at the airport by submitting their customs and immigration declaration in advance of arrival.

UPDATE: July 12, 2022, 2:30 p.m.
Current border measures for travellers entering Canada extended until September 30, 2022
