Arriving at the Airport/Port of Entry

Have your documents ready

When you arrive at the airport or port of entry you should be ready to present the following documents:

  • Your original letter of acceptance to Humber
  • A valid passport
  • Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) if required
  • The letter of introduction given to you by the Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate
  • Document showing financial support
  • Citizens or residents of the United States, Greenland, and St. Pierre et Miquelon can apply for their study permit at the port of entry with all of the appropriate documents
  • Any other documents recommended by the visa office where you applied

Note: When handed your study permit, check that your personal information as well as the expiry date are correct.

Canada Customs

When you enter Canada you can bring a reasonable amount of clothing, books and other personal items. If you're bringing more than $10,000 CAD into the country, you must report the money.

Visit the International Office

When you arrive at Humber, be sure to visit the International Centre offices so we can introduce ourselves. We will ensure that you have everything you need to be successful in your journey here at Humber. Please make sure you bring your valid immigration documents (passport and study permit), as Humber is required to have a copy of these items on file. You will also be required to provide Humber with your local address and emergency contact information before the start of classes.

Attending Orientation

A formal orientation is offered for all of Humber’s academic programs. This is a great way to meet teachers and fellow students while learning what to expect from your program. We strongly recommend attending orientation as it eases the stress of the first week of classes. Orientation usually begins the week before classes start and this information will be emailed to you in advance.

International Students Welcome

To welcome international students to the Humber community, International Student Services offers a series of workshops and events designed to help ease the adjustment to a new life and a new country. You can also attend workshops such as: Health Insurance Support, Co-op/Post Grad Work Permits and employment readiness. You will also have the opportunity to take part in social events that will help you get to know your fellow students and to discover your new city, including trips to Niagara Falls and the CN Tower, downtown walking tours of Toronto, movie nights and sporting events.
