What is a Canada ETA?

The Canada Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is mandatory for individuals who are exempted from visas and are planning to travel to Canada for tourism, business, or air transit. Travelers from countries that require a visa may also be eligible for an eTA for air travel but will need a visitor visa for other modes of transportation, such as trains or buses. It is advised that you apply for an eTA before booking your flight. Once approved, the eTA will be linked to your passport, and you only need to present it during flight check-in; no additional documents are required. It’s important to note that when visiting Canada, you need either a visitor visa or an eTA, but not both. Keep the receipt safe since it cannot be printed or retrieved later.

Here are the laws and rules that control immigration and movement of foreigners in Canada:

  • Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA): This law manages immigration and the protection of refugees in Canada.
  • Citizenship Act: It outlines the requirements for obtaining Canadian citizenship.
  • Criminal Code: This includes rules regarding immigration offenses, like overstaying a visa or entering Canada unlawfully.
  • Canada-United States Safe Third Country Agreement: This agreement stops refugees from seeking asylum in Canada if they have already sought it in the United States.
