SAIT-related travel

Consistent with the Government of Alberta’s travel advisories and the Government of Canada’s order to limit all non-essential travel, SAIT-related travel is prohibited for students and employees until further notice.

SAIT-related travel is funded or endorsed by SAIT and includes activities like: study abroad, research projects, field work, business development and client engagement, recruitment, teaching, training and conferences.

Exceptions to this may be considered for travel within Alberta and Canada. Travel must be:

  • deemed essential
  • approved by senior executive
  • reviewed through a risk assessment conducted by the office of Safety and Community Services.

General information

International travel

The Government of Canada's official source of destination-specific travel information can be reviewed at Official Global Travel Advisories.

On Thursday, Jan. 7, the Government of Canada introduced mandatory COVID-19 testing for air travellers coming to Canada. All travellers will be required to show a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours (96 hours for select destinations) prior to boarding.

This requirement is mandatory and is separate from the Government of Alberta’s International Border Testing Pilot Program.

International students are encouraged to connect with the International Centre and review our FAQ.

Arriving in Alberta

When you arrive in Alberta after a period of time away in another country, including the United States, Government of Alberta public health directives require the following:

  • quarantine for 14 days
  • self-monitor for respiratory or flu-like symptoms for 14 days

Returning travellers must not come to campus until they have gone through the 14-day isolation period. A traveller may, however, return to campus sooner than 14 days if they have fulfilled all requirements of the International Border Testing Pilot Program and provide verification to their supervisor or instructor.

If you become sick with a cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat during this time, then you must isolate for a further 10 days from the beginning of symptoms or until you are feeling well, whichever takes longer.

Entering the United States

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 26, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will require all travelers flying to or transiting through the United States from international destinations, including U.S. citizens, to provide proof of either a negative COVID-19 test or documentation of recovery.

The COVID-19 test must:

  • be a viral test (NAAT or antigen) with a “negative” or “COVID-19 not detected” result
  • be taken within the three calendar days prior to departure
  • show written proof of the traveller’s negative laboratory test result.

Travellers must show written proof of their negative laboratory test result or documentation of recovery before boarding. This requirement does not apply to children under two or those traveling entirely within the United States.

Please note that details are subject to change. We recommend you visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html for up to date information and frequently asked questions.

Returning to campus

In addition to meeting the requirements noted, all persons must be able to satisfy the health status conditions noted in the Daily Campus Access Form.

Be sure to account for any required isolation requirements when booking your time away with your supervisor or instructor.
