eTA Canada

What is eTA?

eTA Canada is an Electronic Travel Authorization system implemented in 2016 to pre-check foreign travelers who wish to visit Canada for tourism, business, or transit purposes. Anyone who comes from an eligible country that is visa-exempt must apply online for an eTA authorization prior to their trip.

Introducing eTAs instead of regular visas has greatly facilitated the process of obtaining an appropriate entry permit and traveling to Canada in general. Since the entire application procedure can be completed online and the approved e-Visas arrive at the applicant’s e-mail address, eTA is considered one of the easiest entry permits to get!

Maximum time of processing can take up to 72 hours; however, most applications are approved within minutes from submitting the form. Use any working device to get your eTA to Canada quickly delivered to your inbox.
