Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa.
Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed. Don’t wait until the last minute – apply NOW for an eTA.
You do not need an eTA if you are a Canadian Citizen or Canadian permanent resident or if you are a U.S. citizen. (However, lawful US permanent residents of the U.S. need an eTA if travelling by air.)
