Tips for foreign students

Before your arrival

Tip related to your studies

On your arrival

  • Make sure you have your travel and university documents: valid passport, electronic travel authorization, visa, registration confirmation, etc. These documents should be easily accessible - it is important not to pack them in your checked baggage!
  • Simplify your arrival in Canada by filling out your customs and immigration declaration for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) 72 hours prior to arrival in Canada, using the ArriveCAN application.
  • When you are speaking with a Canada Border Services Agency officer, remove your hat and sunglasses.
  • To avoid the possibility of penalties, make sure you have the necessary information before attempting to bring food products into Canada.
  • For restrictions on alcohol, tobacco and the amounts of money you can bring with you, visit the Government of Canada’s website
