As of July 6, international students who are fully vaccinated, have a valid study permit and test negative for COVID will not have to quarantine or stay in a government-authorized hotel when they arrive in Canada.
To be considered fully vaccinated, students must show proof that they have had two shots of one of the following approved vaccines:
- Janssen (Johnson & Johnson – only one shot)
All international travellers will still need to do a COVID test 72 hours before coming to Canada, do a second test upon arrival and have a quarantine plan ready in case they test positive.
There are no changes to Canada’s quarantine process for travellers who are not fully vaccinated.
