Entry requirements for Canada have changed. Find out if they apply to you.

In addition to your valid passport, you will also need:

  • a valid Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)*, or;
  • a valid visa, or;
  • a valid Permanent Resident Card (PRC)

See Canada.ca/eta for complete details. 

*Holders of a valid Canadian passport, Canadian Permanent Resident Card (PRC) or Canadian visa, as well as U.S. citizens, are ineligible for an eTA and must present their original documents for travel.

Food Products

The transport of food products is subject to a variety of regulations. This section contains useful links and information to help you decide whether to bring yours on your next trip, and how to do so.

Food entering Canada must conform to Canadian Food Inspection Agency regulations.

Food leaving Canada must conform to the regulations of the country of destination. As certain items may be prohibited or subject to local customs fees, and to prevent confiscation by local authorities, we strongly recommend you consult your travel agent or destination country consulate for information.
