The Canadian Government have introduced a new entry requirement, it is known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), that applies to visa-exempt foreign nationals* travelling to or transiting Canada by air.
Effective from March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
Upon purchase an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is valid for up to 5 years
If you’re visiting Canada you’ll need an eTA to board your flight unless you’re otherwise exempt (for example, if you have a valid Canadian visa or a permanent resident card). If you have British-Canadian dual nationality you will not be able to apply for an eTA and you’ll need to present a valid Canadian passport to board your flight to Canada.
To apply for an ETA, you must have
* A valid passport
* A valid email address
* A credit/debit card to complete the online application.
The information you provide in your online eTA application must be an exact match to your passport and you must use the same passport that is linked to your online eTA application when you travel.
Any incorrect information you provide could result in your application to be invalid
Your email address must be correct so we may send you your conformation
In your application you need to provide the biographic information such as your name, date and place of birth, gender, marital status, address, nationality and passport number. You also need to answer a few simple background questions to determine if you can come to Canada. For example, you will be asked about your
*How much money you have available for your visit to Canada,
*If you have any medical issues.
