IRCC made an update regarding students travelling to Canada


On February 4, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) made some clarifications to the instructions for international students travelling to Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to boarding their flight, travellers must install the ArriveCAN application. They also must possess valid immigration medical examination results. Students whose study is less than six months and who therefore would have been exempt from applying for a study permit now are not allowed to travel to Canada unless they obtain a study permit. The new instructions also deal with immediate family members accompanying travelling study permit holders.
