Canadian Government- New entry requirements- Electronic Travel Authorization

01/01/2016
 

The Government of Canada has recently introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), that applies to visa-exempt foreign nationals* travelling to or transiting Canada by air.

Effective March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals must obtain an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada. To complete an application for an eTA, a passport, credit card and an email address is required. An eTA costs $7 CAD and is valid for up to five years. Among those exempted from this new requirement are U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. As well, entry requirements for travellers arriving by land or sea level have not changed.

To see if the citizens of a country need an eTA or to apply for one or for additional information, visit the Government of Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization website:
