Electronic Travel Authorization

The Government of Canada has recently introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

Starting March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals (including Swiss citizens) who fly to or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa.
If you are citizen of another country and would like to find out if you need an eTA visit the Government of Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization website.
To complete your application for an eTA, you will need your passport, a credit card and an email address. An eTA costs CAD7 and is valid for up to five years or until your passport expires, whichever comes first.
For additional information or to apply for your eTA please visit the Government of Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization website:

Entry requirements for travelers arriving by land or sea have not changed.
