    International Students (approved before 18) need an 'essential' reason to travel to Canada.

    Hi. I was on the US F-1 student visa. I'm not sure about the lastest update for US students since I have my visa approved before March 18. The CBSA did asked me about my status in the US though. They were easy on me maybe bcause Winnipeg airport is small and not many visitors I guess.

    Flight choices for those with approved study permits before Match 18, 2020

The student got in today doesn't even have a support letter from school, just loa, passport, POE letter, etc. 2 questions asked: Why travel this time...

    Any new students travelled or travelling, who's visa was approved before 18th March.

    That's what they should have done like 3 months ago. I already booked a quarantine place, a ticket, and found a permanent place to live after quarantine. It's not that simple and easy to study abroad, just come and study. We have so much to prepare, not mentioning the money that we paid for...

    Ontario enters stage 3 (fall'20 course delivery)

    In Manitoba, restaurants are opened to full capacity. But universities are still online. It's money after all. Universities have spent a lot to move to online classes. That's what they said. We still have to pay the same or higher fees even for online classes. My school's tuition is hiking this...

    Any new students travelled or travelling, who's visa was approved before 18th March.

    They don't have travel letter. I don;t know where they landed, but Toronto or Van probably. You can go to Twitter. Many people called and CBSA is inconsistent over the phone. Sometimes they say you can come no matter of your classes status online or offline, sometimes they say they won't...

    International Students (approved before 18) need an 'essential' reason to travel to Canada.

    I think so. The final decision lies on CBSA though, but that has always been the case. Even before the pandemic, with a study visa, you still face the chances of being denied, it's just now that chance is higher.

    International Students (approved before 18) need an 'essential' reason to travel to Canada.

    I'm from Vietnam. Have been in US under F1 student visa. I can't really stay in the US without studying/doing nothing. My studies has ended and I applied and transferred all credits to Canada. I'll just prepare all documents as many as possible. I have a sister who is studying in Canada, so I...

    International Students (approved before 18) need an 'essential' reason to travel to Canada.

    I'm not really sure about this. Since I'm not a US citizen, I have to apply for a study permit, but I think it might be different in your case. But generally, if you want study, you need to have a study permit. It is stated on IRCC website that those who arrive from the US only need to prove...

    I think it makes sense if you arrive 4 -6 weeks prior to your school's start date

    Do I need student visa to enter Canada? (COVID Q)

    The last part doesn't apply to those who arrive from the US. For those who arrive from other countries than the US, they need to 1) be exempted and 2) essential travel, but those from the US only need 1) essential travel. IRCC has started processing the study permit, and if you get it before...

    International Students (approved before 18) need an 'essential' reason to travel to Canada.

    Hi. Where are you departing? I'm a foreign national traveling from the US, so we're kind of on the same boat. I don't know if it's different for us traveling from the states. I already booked a flight also on August 2 and I'll fly to Winnipeg from Minnesota

    Not really. Only a Vietnamese case that you already known. More will travel during August for fall sem, so let's wait. I'll travel on August 2, so if I'm denied or allowed (hope that I can enter), I'll update for sure.
