Fly to Canada on a Study Visa* during Pandemic – Support Letter

Airport officials and Immigration officers are asking for a Support Letter. This letter is issued by the relevant College/University authorities and includes all student information by which one will get permission to board their pre-booked flight.

The four main features of a Support Letter are as follows:

1. Student name, program enrollment and fee submission status.

2. Online enrollment status.

3. Reasons for necessary travel. Some relevant points are given as follows:

-Bad internet connectivity: having insufficient bandwidth available to properly attend online classes.

-Electricity Issues: unreliable power supply leading to frequent power cuts and outages.

-Time Zone Issues: inability to study online due to very large time zone differences.

4. 14 day Quarantine Period: mentioning that one will be self quarantining for 14 days along with details of where the planned stay will be, in a hotel or with relatives, is a crucial aspect of the Support Letter. 

Please remember to make a Departure File as well, this should include all the other relevant documents required by the airport officials when they ask for it.

In the current circumstances it is recommended to arrive 5-6 hours early so as to overcome long queues and smoothly complete all formalities such as check-ins or immigration.

Best wishes to everyone who is going study in Canada, have a safe journey. 



*Terms and Conditions apply: Study Visa should have been issued prior to 18th March 2020.

Sample Answer

India is located in such a manner as to cross the tropic of cancer midway. This means that it is a tropical country with highly unusual weather patterns.


During the Autumn months, we experience Monsoon season, wherein it tends to rain for months on end depending on where you live in the country. Mangoes are abundant in that season and agriculture, in general, is hugely dependent on sufficient rainfall. However, further down south tornadoes and flooding are a real concern every year.


During the summer seasons, it is ludicrously hot and humid, or hot and dry, again depending on where you reside. Due to this, heatstrokes are common and it is advised to stay indoors and remain hydrated during the peak hours of the day. I myself do not like to nap in the middle of the day, but a majority of the public does.


The spring months are far more forgiving in terms of weather fluctuations, the heat is manageable and it is the best time of year in my opinion, as everything is in bloom. It is also the best time to go travelling, yet this year I have not been able to go out much in light of the global pandemic.


Lastly, the cold season. We have dry winters in India, not much rain but a lot of fluctuating temperatures, the middle of the days are again very hot due to the cloudless skies, the nights reach freezing temperatures, quite the contrasting combination. Snow is practically unheard of unless you live in the Himalayas.


So overall, India is home to some fascinating climate phenomenons, which makes it especially hard to accurately predict the weather before time, the topography and wind patterns with atmospheric pressures have a huge role to play in the cycle of the elements here.
