New Canadian entry requirement now in effect
In March 2016, Canada introduced new requirements for foreign visitors who enter Canada by air.
Visa-exempt foreign nationals now need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents cannot apply for an eTA.
Applying for an eTA is a simple and inexpensive ($7 Canadian) online process that will take just a few minutes. Most eTA-eligible applicants will get their authorization within minutes of submitting the online form.
Find out if you need an eTA.
Effective January 15, 2022, some foreign national travellers who were previously allowed to enter Canada without being fully vaccinated will now be required to be fully vaccinated in order to enter Canada. There will also be changes to testing and quarantine exemptions for certain travellers, regardless of citizenship, entering Canada. Find out if you can enter Canada.
The charts below have been provided for your convenience, but the most up-to-date visa information should be found on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.
The following travellers need and eTA to board their flight to Canada. However, these travellers do not need an eTA if entering by land or sea – for instance driving from the U.S. or coming by bus, train, or boat, including cruise ship.
