eTA Canada is the Electronic Travel Authorization introduced by the government of Canada to facilitate travel to eligible travelers planning to travel to Canada by air. The Canadian eTA is issued for short-term trips and can be used for tourism, business, or transit purposes.
Canada eTA is issued as a multiple-entry permit, which entitles its holder to stay in Canada for up to 6 months each time. The Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) remains valid for 5 years from the date of issue. Nevertheless, the traveler's passport must remain valid for the entire validity of eTA. Otherwise, if the passport expires earlier, the eTA will automatically expire, too.
Applicants eligible for an eTA application can submit the online application within a few simple steps, including filling out a short online form, covering the processing fee, and receiving the eTA confirmation via email. An eTA application is usually approved within hours or even minutes.
