For DLI to be opened to international students who aren’t currently in Canada, they must have a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their province or territory that:
1. Will protect the health and safety of all students and the surrounding community
2. Give detailed explanation on how to go about the mandatory 14-day quarantine period for international students, including arrangements for transportation to the students’ quarantine location
3. Give information and support to international students about health insurance, how to remain safe and healthy in Canada, places to get basic items like food and medicines etc.

If your DLI is not listed, please DO NOT TRAVEL as you will not be allowed to board your flight and even if you were allowed to travel you may be turned away at the port of entry.
Also your family members who will be coming with you to Canada can’t travel to Canada before you do.
We will keep you updated as more DLIs are added to the list. You can also check our website for updates to see if your DLI has been included.
