Traveling to Canada
Passengers traveling to Canada must provide eTA at check-in (hard copy or on a mobile device), including those with a study/work permit.
What is an eTA?
Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa-exempt foreign nationals traveling to Canada by air. The authorization is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for five years or until your passport expires. Applying for an eTA is the sole responsibility of the passenger.
Citizens of some countries and territories need a visa to visit or transit Canada. Others require an eTA.
- Canadian citizens or dual Canadian citizens,
- Canadian permanent residents, or
- U.S. citizen. (However, lawful permanent residents of the U.S. need an eTA if traveling by air.)
How do I apply for an eTA?
Applying for an eTA is a simple online process that takes just a few minutes. To apply, you must have a valid passport, credit card, and email address.
