Travelling to Canada - international student

Preparing to enter Canada, gathering the documents to have on hand, and clearing Canadian customs.

As of April 25, fully vaccinated travellers are no longer required to provide a quarantine plan to enter Canada and are no longer required to follow specific rules following their arrival in Canada (maintain a list of close contacts and places visited for the first 14 days after arrival, etc.). For more details, see the government website.

Université Laval is pleased to support its students from abroad. We invite all international students to closely follow the steps listed here before coming to study at Université Laval.
