ETA Canada - Travel Authorization
The Canadian government has adjusted the travel provisions and introduced the so-called Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) for some nationalities which will come into effect from 15.03.2016 onwards. All visa-exempt nationals of the following are obliged to apply before departure..
Important: Applicants with criminal records or applicants that have been previously deported or expelled in any country, cannot apply for ETA. Likewise travelers with dual citizenship, so far Canadian and a visa-exempt nationals, require a valid Canadian passport and no ETA. Travelers reach Canada on land or sea, are still allowed to enter without a visa and ETA. The entry requirements for travelers entering by land or Sea remain unchanged.
Explanation and validity of an ETA for Canada
The advantage of the electronic travel authorization is that travelers are checked before leaving for Canada and thus the entry is facilitated. Problems can be solved before you start your journey to ensure that you are not held up unnecessarily.
Once authorized, the entry permit is valid for five years and can used for multiple visits as long as your passport remains valid and the permit has not been revoked or cancelled. Furthermore the Canada ETA is issued in line with the passport therefore if your passport expires or your personal information changes, you must re-apply for a new ETA in line with your new passport.
