Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) Effective in March

Take Advantage of Voluntary Enrolment Before March 16, 2016

Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is a new Canadian visa entry requirement for travellers from countries that currently do not need a visa for entry (US citizens excluded).

A voluntary enrolment period for eTA was introduced in August 2015, as a way of avoiding possible issues at Canadian borders. The requirement will be mandatory as of March 16, 2016. Be sure to take the time to inform your customers of the change throughout the remainder of the voluntary enrollment period which continues until March 15, 2016.

TIAC is keeping in close contact with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and will continue to update members through our TIAC Talk newsletter and our website.
