International Students arriving from outside Canada

Immigration Notice:

As of October 20 international students cannot travel to Canada from abroad unless their institution’s COVID-19 readiness plan is approved by the provincial government as per the latest IRCC travel update. King’s and Western's plan has been submitted to the Government of Ontario. While awaiting approval, the following advisories are in effect:
• International students at King’s who are currently abroad will not be allowed to travel to Canada until further notice.
• International students who are in Canada and choose to travel internationally will not be able to return until King’s/Western’s COVID-19 readiness plan is approved.


All King's University College students arriving from outside of Canada (including international students and Canadian citizens) are required to complete a 14-day quarantine and must register their quarantine plan prior to, or immediately upon, arrival in Canada. Volunteers will connect with you through the contact information provided in your registration.

If you have questions about quarantine, please contact King’s International at

King’s has made arrangements for residence and non-residence students to have access to a transportation and self-isolation service through Maple Assist.  Residents can also make their own self-isolation plan, with certain requirements for authorization to move into residence. More information can be found here.

Currently, in addition to requiring a valid study permit or a port of entry letter of introduction (study permit approval) before or on March 18, 2020, students arriving internationally are required to provide documentation that indicates that their study in Canada is deemed essential
