Electronic Travel Authorizations (ETA)

Most applicants seeking to visit Canada must either obtain a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). US citizens and green card holders are not required to get either.

Generally, applicants from the European Union, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand are not required to obtain visas and need to submit an ETA application online instead. The cost is currently $7 and is decided quickly for most applicants. Applicants with criminal convictions or previous Canadian refusals may need to provide additional documentation and wait longer in order to obtain a decision on an ETA.

Travellers from other countries may need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to enter and stay in Canada for up to 6 months. A TRV is issued to someone visiting family or friends within Canada, a business-person, a tourist, a short-term student (for studies of under 6 months), or a person transiting through Canada.
