International students guide
Welcome to Edmonton!
We are thrilled you are studying at one of Edmonton’s post secondary schools.
It probably wasn’t an easy choice to travel so far away from home, so please let us be the first to welcome you to your new temporary home.
On this page, you will find information and tips to help you plan your trip and to know what to expect when you arrive.
If you arrive to EIA directly from your international destination, you will clear Canada Customs in Edmonton.
If you arrive to Canada via another airport such as Toronto or Vancouver, you will clear Canada Customs at your first port of entry.
Once you fly onward to Edmonton, you will arrive as a domestic passenger.
