When could I travel to Canada once I get my student visa approved?

Main Content

There is no specific earliest date you can travel; however, an officer may have concerns if you are travelling several months before you begin your studies. 

Arriving a month before you begin, or resume studies should be considered reasonable. If you must travel earlier, prepare a detailed explanation for the airline and border officer if asked. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer you meet at the airport/border crossing will make the final decision on whether or not to admit you to Canada.

Learn about the requirements for travelling to study in Toronto by visiting our International Students Travelling to Canada page.
