New travel regulations for international students
The Government of Canada recently announced that as of October 20, 2020, international students attending select designated learning institutions (DLIs) in Canada and who have a valid study permit or have been approved for a study permit are able to enter Canada.
The University of Saskatchewan (USask) is one of the institutions that developed a readiness plan that met the strict federal and provincial criteria required to host international students.
While most university buildings remain closed until further notice and classes at USask continue to be delivered primarily remotely (online) with limited in-person instruction, students may be considering travel to Canada to study for a number of reasons and if they choose to do so, we are here to support them through the process.
International students are encouraged to review information for international students at USask, as well as USask’s COVID-19 health and safety requirements to help make informed decisions regarding travel.
In particular, information about travelling to Canada should be reviewed carefully, including documents required to enter Canada, mandatory quarantine requirements that apply to all incoming travelers, how to apply for a USask supported quarantine option and other important things to consider prior to making travel plans.
USask's International Student and Study Abroad Centre is here to help if students have questions. They can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by accessing daily drop-in advising on Monday-Friday from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm (CST).
