Completing the necessary formalities

Have the following documents on hand when you arrive at the airport or a border crossing:

  • your passport
  • your study permit (or the letter of authorization issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada)
  • your temporary resident visa (where applicable)
  • your CAQ for studies
  • your health certificate (if you had to pass a medical examination to obtain your study permit)
  • the letter of admission from the educational institution you will attend.


If you have a letter of authorization to study from a Canadian representative abroad, this letter will be validated by the Canadian immigration authorities.

You will also have to provide the customs inspectors with a list of personal effects that you are bringing with you or have sent, where applicable. See the section on the list of personal effects (Step 4- Preparing yourself before departure for Québec)

If you arrive at Montréal’s Pierre-Eliot-Trudeau International Airport, you can ask an Immigration Québec officer for general information.
