International Travel Information

Join your Enrollment Management colleagues on November 13-16, 2022, for an in-person experience at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

International travel is a vastly different experience from traveling domestically. Travelers must prepare carefully before embarking on a trip to another country, no matter how similar the destination may seem. Even those familiar with traveling abroad can run into unexpected issues or changes in plans, and it is essential to understand the ins and outs before traveling internationally. 

Please look through the information provided below before planning to attend this meeting.

The Government of Canada requires all non-Canadian citizens age 18 and over entering the country to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

* Foreign nationals must meet the entry requirements under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and provide appropriate travel and immigration documentation as necessary. Final determination on entry and quarantine is made by a government representative at the port of entry based on the information presented at the time of entry.

All travelers eligible to enter Canada must submit contact and travel information in the ArriveCAN system within 72 hours before arrival in Canada. Fully vaccinated travelers must also enter their proof of vaccination.

You must use ArriveCAN to provide mandatory travel information before and after your entry into Canada. It only takes minutes to help keep each other safe. Available for iOS, Android, and web.

The mobile app is free and available in English, French, and Spanish. Download the latest version of ArriveCAN or click 'update' in your app store.

International Travel Checklist (Tips & Suggestions)

*The U.S. Passport office is currently experiencing delays in processing passports. It may take up to 16 weeks to receive a passport and 12 weeks for expedited processing. Applicants who need a new passport or who need to renew their passport should start the process immediately.  You will not be permitted to use your expired U.S. passport to return to the United States after June 30, 2022. 

  • Acquire an International driver's license if your regular one will not suffice for driving in the destination country.
  • Make photocopies of important documents and keep them separate from the originals.
  • Check for health and travel advisories or warnings.
  • Visit the CDC website for health information, risks, and specific vaccination requirements for the country. Learn which prescription drugs are permitted or illegal, and bring any necessary doctor's notes/instructions.
  • Consider registering your trip for free with the U.S. Department of State so the government or relatives can locate or contact you in an emergency.
  • Bring multiple payment methods and memorize or note any PINs and card numbers. Keep this sensitive information secure. Alert your bank of your travel plans to avoid losing access to your money.
  • Consider buying travel insurance.
  • Pack appropriately, and don't bring valuables you would miss if lost.
  • Do your research and educate yourself on tourist safety.
