Since 2016, Canada has been offering an online visa to foreign travelers coming from visa-exempt countries. An electronic visa to Canada is dedicated for those who want to make a trip to Canada and enter by air for tourism, transit or business purposes.
What is eTA to Canada?
eTA is electronically linked to your passport and replaces the need for a paper document. Since it is valid for five years and functions as a multiple-entry permit, its holder can enter Canada and come back here to explore the places that didn’t manage to visit for the first time.
The eTA is not a guaranteed indication you would get through customs. Still, it can speed up the process as it helps immigration officers pre-screen international visitors crossing the Canadian borders.
