You and your co-arriving family members need to plan to travel directly to your place of quarantine, while wearing a non-medical mask, maintaining as much distance as possible within the vehicle from the driver, and if possible having the vehicle window partially open.
Choosing your travel plan wisely: Make sure to check your eligibility to travel by checking for IRCC updates here. It is your decision to weigh the risks for travelling to Canada. If you are denied entry and required to return to your home country, you will bear all costs of return.
All newly arriving Georgian students must complete a mandatory quarantine commitment form. If you do not comply you will not be eligible to receive the quarantine commitment letter which must be shown at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to enter Canada. Additionally, all co-arriving family members must complete a separate mandatory commitment form.
