Canada published the list of approved educational institutions for in-person studies
Canada has imposed several travel restrictions on foreign nationals. Of course, the main reason is to protect Canadians’ health and safety despite the spread of COVID-90. However, starting from October 20, 2020, some international students may travel to Canada and study in person. Of course, their school must be an approved DLI.
Which international students may travel to Canada
You may travel to Canada if you meet all of the following criteria:
- You hold a valid study permit.
- The school you are attending is on the approved list of IRCC.
- You have a quarantine plan for the first 14 days of your stay in Canada.
The list of approved schools
IRCC has published a list of approved DLIs on their website. Consequently, do not travel if your school is not on this list. Click the following link to explore the list of approved Designated Learning Institutions.
What about my family members
Your spouse, common-law partner or dependent children may also travel to Canada with you. However, they must meet the following requirements:
- They must hold proper documentation (e.g. a valid TRV, eTA, open work permit or open study permit).
- There is a 14-day quarantine plan in place for them.
- They won’t enter Canada before you.
Keep in mind, this is a fluid situation, and the government policies could change at any time. They could also expand or contract the list of approved schools.
What if I do not hold a study permit but admission from an approved school
Holding admission from an approved school is not good enough. Consequently, you need to apply for a study permit. Of course, you may travel to Canada if both your study permit is valid and your school s on the approved list. Visit the following pages for more information on a study permit in Canada.
