Visiting Canada after 15 March 2016? Find out about eTAs.

posted August 21, 2015


Holiday to Canada

Are you travelling to Canada after 15th March 2016? If yes, then you might need to travel with an Electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA) – a new entry requirement for foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air.

If you’re a British or Irish Citizen travelling to Canada then you will need to purchase an eTA before you board your flight. This new process will allow the Canadian government to screen all travellers before they enter the country.

Canada holiday

Purchasing an eTA is quick and easy to do: just visit the Government of Canada website and fill out an online application. The process is simple and only takes a few minutes – make sure you have your passport and email address ready.

An eTA costs CA $7 (the equivalent of around £3.50), and you will need to pay at the time of your application, so have your credit card to hand. Once you’ve purchased your eTA it is valid for five years, or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.

It’s vital to purchase an eTA before boarding your flight to Canada. It is your responsibility as the passenger to apply for an eTA prior to travelling, not the responsibility of the airline or Canadian Affair.
