Canada - Electronic Travel Authorization Mandatory for Visa-exempt Nations

September 2016, 01
EMAIL  Print A+
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has launched a new Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) for all the countries that avail the visa-free travel facility for Canada. The eTA is mandatory from September 29th for all the nationals who benefit from visa exemption, traveling to Canada or transiting through Canada to other destinations by air. Though the announcement of eTA was made on March 15, 2016 but the travelers with valid documents were allowed to board the flight if they have requisite travel documents. ETA is optional now, but, after September 29, 2016, it is mandatory to obtain Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Travelers will not be allowed to board an aircraft without eTA. 

American citizens are exempted from any requirements but the permanent residents have to apply for the eTA prior entering the country. As earlier, every individual will continue to go through the interview process by the Canada Border Services Agency officer who will verify the travel documents of the applicant.
The eTA will be valid for five years and will be directly linked to individual’s passport.
