Arrival date


Before planning your trip to Canada, make sure you meet the requirements to be allowed to travel to Canada. Have a close look at the “International Students: All you need to know” page to get all the information you need for your trip to Canada.

Given the current situation, we recommend you plan to arrive no earlier than 4 weeks and a minimum of 14 days before classes start. These days before the start of your academic semester will give you time to complete your mandatory quarantine, if required, and administrative steps required for enrolment.

If you need to find a place to live when you arrive in Québec City, we suggest you allow 3 to 5 additional days for your search.

The Bureau de la vie étudiante offers orientation activities before the semester starts, but also throughout the year to help you familiarize with Québec City.
