So now that you have decided to go to Canada there are a few things you should be aware of. At first you should know the rules regarding entry to this country. Most of you have heard the term eTA, an abbreviation for Electronic Travel Authorization. You might be wondering what really Eta Canada is. To simplify it, an eTA is an alternative to Visa for people of visa-exempt countries entering Canada through airways. As made compulsory by the Government of Canada, all foreign nationals have to carry the Eta Visa while flying or transiting through this country. It came into full effect on 10th November 2016.

Travellers who do not have an eTA are not allowed to enter Canada anymore. However, if you plan to go there by road or by sea you would not need an eTA. Also if you are a citizen of Canada or America then Canada Eta is not required. The good thing about eTA is that it can be availed very easily. You just need to have a valid email id and a credit card. The official website of the Government of Canada offers an application form which you need to fill up in order to get your eTA. You will have a limited time for completing and submitting the form. Hence, you should read the form properly to avoid making mistakes. When you submit your application, you need to pay a nominal amount of $7 with your credit card. It is better to take the receipt immediately after making the payment. In most cases the eTA application gets approved within minutes of submission. If you do not get the approval mail in minutes, it is possible that it has gotten lost in your junk folder. Sometimes it takes more time due to lack of documents. The eTA stays valid for the next five years from the time of approval. During that period you can go to Canada multiple times and reside there up to 6 months at a stretch. The Canada government advises people to apply for an eTA before boarding a flight to Canada.

A third party such as your friend, a member of your family or a travel agency can apply for an eTA on behalf of you. So don’t wait and book your flight tickets to Canada today for experiencing a mind-blowing vacation.
