Students should make travel arrangements as soon as possible. When arrangements are confirmed, students must contact their homestay family to inform them of the arrival date, time and flight number. In most cases, the homestay family will meet the student upon arrival.

Students must also send their travel information to the VISP office by email or fax. Include travel information for the student’s end-of-program departure from Victoria, if it is available.

It is important that students book a flight through to VICTORIA International Airport. Do not end the flight in Vancouver unless a visit to the Vancouver region is part of the travel plan. Where students are visiting Vancouver first, arrangements for travel to Victoria should be made and provided to the homestay family and VISP Office.

Travel from Victoria

Students may not leave Victoria without permission from the VISP Office. This rule is in place for student safety. Students who are planning trips home during holidays must book flights as early as possible. Students are expected to schedule holiday travel during school vacation periods.

Students should not miss classes.
