Details on a return to campus for our international students will become clearer in the coming weeks, and is based upon federal and provincial advice. TRU’s plans will consider how to best support international students if they are not yet able to return.
Travel restrictions can change at any time. The final decision to allow you to enter Canada is at the discretion of a Canada Border Services Agency officer. Documents you should have include: a study permit approval (letter of introduction) or a valid study permit, a temporary resident visa or electronic travel authorization, a current letter of acceptance and proof you have enough money to support yourself and any family members who accompany you to Canada.
Study permits are processed and issued by Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). For information about study permits, please visit the IRCC website.
TRU provides supporting documents such as a letter of enrolment, letter of completion, transcripts and supporting letters. To request supporting letters, please click here. If you need your transcript, you can order your transcripts online.
First and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be made available in Canada to international students. For international students who plan to get their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Canada, please bring your COVID-19 vaccination record, which will help health care workers provide a second dose that best matches with your first dose.
For more information on student international travel during the pandemic see the Government of Canada website.
