All international students enrolled at BCIT who plan to travel to Canada are required to notify BCIT prior to their date of travel by submitting the form below.

Before completing the form below, you must review public health measures for travelers to Canada and the International Student Guide – Travel to Canada [PDF] for important information including:

  • Government travel restrictions and regulations
  • Required documents for entering Canada
  • Detailed instructions to help you complete the required federal ArriveCAN Application and BC Self-Isolation Plan
  • Arranging for self-isolation accommodation, food delivery, and transportation options from the airport

Self-isolation is a very serious matter. Local police may enforce self-isolation orders and violations are punishable by a fine of up to $750,000 and/or imprisonment for 6 months and/or becoming inadmissible to Canada.
