In order to enter Canada, residents of some countries, for example, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia, need to get a visa. Visa applications now need to be mailed to the Canadian Consulate in Seattle, which takes considerable time! Here is the link with instructions on how to do that:
Space is limited for all activities, so sign up soon! If you have to cancel, you need to email the office 24 hours before the trip/activity to get a refund.
If you have signed up for a trip, you will receive an email a few days before the trip as a reminder and with more details.
If you have any questions in regards to these activities, please contact Ulli Schraml in the International Programs office in the Syre Student Center Room 201C or at 360-383-3244 or email email@example.com.
