Canada introducing Electronic Travel Authorization

12 Oct 2015 7:51 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

  • eTA is a new, electronic document and entry requirement that is used to screen visa-exempt foreign nationals such as Australians travelling to Canada by air (including transiting by air). 
  • eTA is now available but will not be mandatory for these travelers until March 15, 2016. After March 15, 2016, eTA-required foreign nationals will have to get an eTA to fly to Canada, unless they are otherwise exempted from the requirement.
  • Exceptions include: American citizens and travelers with a valid visa, study permit or work permit. The eTA will be issued with the permits at no additional cost. 
  • eTA applies to visa-exempt travellers entering Canada by air only. People travelling to Canada by land, sea, and rail modes will not be impacted by eTA.
  • Dual citizen Canadians (including children who do not yet have their citizenship card) will need to travel to Canada on a Canadian passport.
