ETA: Mandatory as of November 10, 2016
A new entry requirement into Canada
The Government of Canada has introduced a new entry requirement known as Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa.
Application for this new admittance procedure needs to be completed by eligible travellers at Canada.ca/eTA (and approved by Canadian governing authorities), prior to their trip to Canada, as it is required to board their flight.
eTA eligible applicants must have a valid passport, email address and credit card (CA $7) to complete the online form; authorization is usually received within minutes.
It is strongly recommended that eligible travellers apply for the eTA at the time of booking.
