For students studying abroad, entering the country of study is the first step of studying abroad. So let’s learn about what we need to pay attention to when we go to Canada to study in 2018?
1. Air ticket booking
The summer vacation and Christmas are the peak seasons for studying in Canada, so the general price will be increased by 20% or more based on the shortage of seats, especially for direct routes.
if you want to save money, you can buy a connecting ticket.
but it should be noted that if you choose to transfer via the United States, students must hold a short-term visa from the United States! There are mainly 10 provinces in Canada, but generally there are only three entry points: Toronto in Ontario, Vancouver in BC and Montreal in Quebec. Those who want to reach other cities must transfer through the above three places
General airlines have their own regulations on the size and standard of their luggage. It is recommended to choose Canada airlines or Cathay Pacific Airlines for studying in Canada
Canada Airlines: 2 pieces of luggage can be checked in free of charge (the sum of length, width and height of each piece of luggage is not more than 158CM, and the weight of each luggage is less than 23kg). One standard item (size ≤ 23x40x55cm, weight ≤ 10kg) and one personal belongings (size ≤ 16x33x43cm) can be carried with you
Cathay Pacific: 3 pieces of luggage (the sum of three sides of each bag can not exceed 158 cm, weight ≤ 23kg) and one hand luggage (size ≤ 23x36x56cm, weight ≤ 7kg) can be checked in free of charge when presenting the valid study permit in Canada
3. Carry cash with you
The customs clearly stipulates that the amount of cash on hand when entering Canada should not exceed CAD 10000.
if the cash of Canadian dollar is less than 10000 yuan, but foreign currency (such as US dollar, RMB, etc.) in other currencies is included, after conversion according to the exchange rate, if the total amount exceeds 10000 Canadian dollars, it must be declared to the customs
4. Necessary documents for entry
We strongly recommend that you keep important documents in your carry on backpack and keep a complete copy in your other luggage, but don’t put them in your checked baggage
For the first entry, students should put the original passport, customs letter, admission notice, the latest report card, receipt of tuition fee paid and other information in their carry on luggage for customs inspection
5. Fill in customs declaration card correctly
For inbound passengers, generally, they need to fill in the customs declaration form.
customs declaration form is generally sent to passengers by flight attendants before they get off the plane (it is recommended to carry a black signature pen with them).
passengers can also collect them on their own at the time of entry, so they can not get them on the plane
Note: you must fill in the customs declaration form truthfully, so that CBS can better understand the basic information of the immigrants. In addition, the content on the left side of the entry card is the specific description of the area filled in on the right side (see the figure below), which can be folded, but the part on the right side cannot be folded
