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.
- Access to drop-in travel planning/guidance sessions, offered on a weekly basis in advance of and during the recommended arrival windows below. The details of these sessions will be included in your automatic confirmation email that you will receive after submitting your arrival plan (check both the inbox and junk folder of your email).

Students starting an NBCC program in Fall 2023 are recommended to arrive in New Brunswick four weeks before the first day of classes. 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 Fall 2023 term is Tuesday, September 5, 2023, and the last date to join classes is Monday, September 11, 2023. Extensions to the in-class deadline will not be provided.
