An ETA is an abbreviation for Electronic Travel Authorization. It is an automated online requirement which involves completing an obligatory form for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by airplane. These travelers will visit Canada for the sake of commercialism, tourism or transit. By completing the form, the government can determine whether certain visitors are eligible to enter the country prior to arrival. The authorization is automatically linked to your passport.
If your ETA has been approved and you hold a valid travel document, i.e. a passport, then you will be permitted to travel to Canada. However, simply completing an ETA form does not guarantee your entry as it may be denied. You will receive an email from us to confirm whether your ETA has been accepted or declined. Once accepted, the authorization is valid for five years beginning the date of deliverance or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.
As of March 15th 2016, foreign nationals of the following countries are required to hold a valid ETA before boarding their flight to Canada
