eTA - electronic travel authorisation
The eTA (Electronic Travel Authorisation) is a document that confirms the bearer is allowed to travel to Canada. From November 2016, the Canadian Government introduced a new immigration regulation. The eTA is now necessary for passengers who previously did not require a visa. It is requested online and is directly linked to the passenger’s passport, and is issued by the government of Canada.
To obtain it, simply go to the official Canadian Citizenship and Immigration website (cic) to confirm your eligibility to travel and request the electronic authorisation before departing for Canada. Travellers who have a visa and USA citizens are exempt from this document.
Nationals from the following countries now require an e-TA to visit or travel through Canada:
|Antigua and Barbuda
|Papua New Guinea
| South Korea
