The following information is intended to support international students and their co-arriving family members through the pre-arrival process. Each section of this page outlines documents or actions that need to be completed before travelling to Canada. We strongly recommend that students review the content fully and carefully to ensure that they are aware of their responsibilities as they plan ahead for their travel.

International students who have been fully vaccinated may qualify for certain quarantine and testing exemptions. Please review the Government of Canada’s website for more information. Those who qualify for the exemptions must still complete the steps outlined below, except booking their stay at a government-authorized hotel.

Please contact the ISSO at isso@carleton.ca if you have any additional questions.
