Visitors to Canada

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) wants to help travellers find the information they need to know in order to enter Canada. We have compiled the following useful links to assist in your travel planning.

Electronic Travel Authorization

New entry requirement now in effect: visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa.

Until September 29, 2016, travellers who do not have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents, such as a valid passport. Find answers to your questions about the leniency period.
