As of April 22, 2021 all direct commercial and private passenger flights from India have been banned. On August 10th, this ban was extended to September 21, 2021.
Academic information and supports
All programs that begin in spring 2021 are delivered entirely online which means you can continue with your spring classes as planned, though now you will be in your home country, instead of here in Edmonton.
If you have questions about your courses or books, please reach out to your program directly.
If your program is delivered entirely online, NAIT students are permitted to study their program from outside of Canada as long as you have applied for a study permit. This will have no impact on your study permit or on eligibility for the Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) up to December 31, 2021. Learn more about your permission to study online from outside Canada and PGWP eligibility.
Please note, if this is your first term of studies, it is recommended you study full-time (minimum of 9 credits) to keep your PGWP eligibility.
NAIT encourages students not to travel during your study period, as this can impact your academics and can be disruptive to any groupwork or collaboration taking place in your program. NAIT recommends that you travel once you’ve completed your spring 2021 term.
That being said, Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) does not have any restricted travel dates and you may choose to travel at a time that you consider best. Please be prepared to speak to airport officials as to why you’re travelling mid-semester.
Your travel information
If you are still able to travel on the date you submitted on your Quarantine Questionnaire, no further steps are required.
If your travel information has changed because of this new travel restriction, you must let NAIT know by completing a new Quarantine Questionnaire. When your new flight information to Canada is all booked and finalized, please submit this new information to NAIT here:
