ARRIVAL PLANNING & INFORMATION
Last Updated: June 8, 2022
Since January 15, 2022, international students aged 18+ must be fully vaccinated with a WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccine to enter Canada. Subsequently, the federal government revised COVID-19 travel testing requirements and other regulations, significantly reducing travel-related quarantine requirements for many arriving from outside Canada including TWU students.
Unsure if you can enter Canada? Complete the federal assessment tool online to confirm you are eligible and ready to enter Canada in line with up-to-date travel testing and border requirements.
Student questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or your admissions counsellor if you are a new incoming student.
At this time international arriving students are no longer required to submit a quarantine plan to TWU or the ArriveCan app as part of border and customs regulations. However, students can request documented proof of enrollment below as additional supporting documentation.

Travel-related COVID-19 testing is available at several locations across British Columbia.
