We are excited by the news that we expected to continue fulfilling dreams ...

After a 6-month hiatus, Canada reopens its borders for international students as of October 20, 2020.

And while the Canadian border remains closed to regular travel and tourism, select international students will be able to enter the country later this month, including international high school students. This means that if a student who intends to study in a district with a “Provincially Approved COVID-19 Readiness Plan”, she will be allowed to enter Canada from October 20 if she has a valid study permit. According to the announcement, on Thursday October 8 we will see the preliminary list of school districts whose plans have been approved.

The Public Health Agency of Canada has implemented the following measures for entry into Canada:

All travelers to Canada must now provide specific information after entering Canada through ArriveCAN, such as; updates on your symptoms during your quarantine period.
Travelers flying to Canada must undergo a medical check by the airlines before they are allowed to board their flight. Upon arrival in Canada, the traveler's health and ability to self-quarantine will be assessed before leaving the port of entry.
No foreign national showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 will be allowed to enter Canada, as determined by a Border Services Officer.
Although the VAC (Visa Application Center) in Mexico City is still closed to the public, it will provide Passport delivery services from September 29, 2020 (Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00 to 12:00), customers are requested to Send your documents to the VAC using the agency's messaging as the presentation of documents in person is not allowed.

Study permits are normally only required for programs lasting 6 months or more; And since the February semester is only 5 months, normally a study permit is not required. However, Friday's announcement will mean that all international students will likely require a study permit to enter the country, regardless of the length of their program, at least until the border is fully opened for travel and tourism. But don't worry, at CLASS Education we are here to support you in every step of your process as we have an expert VISAS department to tell you what the Canadian study permit process will be like, including the general application procedure, the current expected waiting times. and how students will submit their biometrics.

Currently, most high school students attend face-to-face classes 50% of the time, and the rest is compensated by distance learning; while others attend school 100% online. The result is a limited field selection and, for now, clubs / sports are largely offered in alternative formats.

Canada's 14-day self-isolation rule for newcomers will remain in effect for a few months. Therefore, students entering for the February semester must anticipate their arrival on January 16. If you have more doubts or questions, come to CLASS Education, we have a team of expert advisors who will help you make the best decision.
