When you arrive at a Canadian port of entry (such as an airport) to receive your study permit, you should have the following documents ready for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers:
Your valid passport which you used during your study permit application.
Port of Entry (POE) / Letter of Introduction:
This is the letter you received from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) confirming the approval of your study permit application. It's not the study permit itself but shows that you're authorized to receive one upon arrival.
The original or electronic copy of the letter of acceptance from the Canadian designated learning institution (DLI) where you are admitted.
Proof of Financial Support:
Documents that prove you have enough money to support yourself during your stay in Canada. This can include bank statements, a Canadian bank account in your name if money has been transferred, proof of a student/education loan, bank drafts or other forms of proof.
Letter of Explanation (if applicable):
This is a letter that explains why you are seeking entry to Canada and ensures the officer that you understand your responsibilities as a student.
Proof of health insurance is not always required at the port of entry, but it's recommended to have it, as healthcare in Canada can be very expensive without insurance.
Study Plan (if applicable):
