Traveling to Canada soon?

Effective September 30, you may need additional documentation to visit Canada, depending on your citizenship and your residence.

Visa-exempt foreign nationals will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) in order to fly to or through Canada. The new requirements do not apply to U.S. citizens and those with a Canadian visa.

If you need an eTA, be certain to apply for it as soon as possible. Most applications are approved within minutes but some can take several days for approval.

To learn more, visit the Canadian Government’s Help Centre. It contains a dropdown that guides you through the requirements, based on the passport you are using to travel to Canada.

To learn more about visa requirements for Canada, visit the Come to Canada page.
