International students travelling to Canada may choose, but are not required, to submit an arrival plan to NBCC using the form below. If you submit an arrival plan using that form, you will be automatically added to our Travel Check-In Program. The Travel Check-In Program includes:
- Travel Restriction Updates via email in advance of your travel (after submission of your arrival plan).
- An email check-in during the week after your anticipated arrival date to Canada. This email will include resources and information about getting settled in New Brunswick.

Students starting an NBCC program in Winter 2024 are recommended to arrive in New Brunswick within the five weeks before the first day of classes (December 3, 2023 – January 7, 2024). However, if you should decide to arrive earlier or later than our recommended arrival window, it is your responsibility to meet all travel restrictions and requirements and to be in class by the deadlines outlined below.
You can see on our Academic Calendar that the first day of classes for the Winter 2024 term is Monday, January 8, 2024. Programs in the Winter 2024 intake are being delivered in a blended format, which does require you to be available on campus for your studies not later than Monday, January 15, 2024, at 8:30am. Extensions to the on-campus deadline will not be provided.
We also encourage you to explore our library of recorded pre-arrival webinars.
