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 (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.
