York Quarantine Information

We can’t wait to welcome you in person to our campuses this September! In order to ease your transition and help us in our planning, please complete this very short survey with respect to your study permit application, your current location and course enrolment.

 

Nous avons hâte de vous accueillir en personne sur nos campus en septembre! Afin de faciliter votre transition et de nous aider dans notre planification, veuillez remplir ce court sondage concernant votre demande de permis d’études, votre lieu actuel et votre inscription aux cours.

Students 18 years and older must meet the requirements of a fully vaccinated traveller to enter Canada and do not need to quarantine unless informed otherwise by customs officials upon entry.

Students 17 years and under do not need to qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller to enter Canada but must quarantine upon entry. These travellers must also take an arrival COVID test and a Day-8 test.

For any further questions, please attend a Travel to Canada webinar or email quarantine@yorku.ca (or regscs@yorku.ca if you are a School of Continuing Studies student) with your student number and travel date clearly indicated in the subject line.

Students who are 17 years of age or under and not fully vaccinated can receive a 14-night quarantine plan.
*Note: York University only covers quarantine costs for students once and for essential, non-discretionary travel. York University only covers quarantine costs at one of our participating hotels booked via York’s Travel to Canada Documentation Request Form. If you plan on making quarantine arrangements elsewhere, you will be responsible for the cost.
