Organize your documents
Now that you’re through the application process, you’ll need to get your travel documents and consent package ready before your trip.

*Update 9/29/2021: IRCC has now updated their public guidance to permit fully-vaccinated foreign nationals to enter Canada to take a course or program for 6 months or less without applying for a study permit. Students pursuing short-term studies who do not qualify as fully vaccinated travellers will still be required to apply for a study permit, and Canadian Border Service officers will make the final decision about whether students will qualify as a fully-vaccinated traveller.

We’ll send you a FAR form with the e-receipt for your payment. When you have all of your travel documents ready, send the form back to us with your flight information and rooming preferences filled in. Completion of this form is mandatory for all participating VSP students.
