What Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) Means for Your Visitors

Does your Alberta tourism business book experiences for visitors from international locations? Consider including information on your booking website about the entry requirements by airline into Canada. The Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) became a requirement a year ago. The purpose of the eTA document is to minimize disruptions and to give travellers and airlines more time to comply with new regulations.

What Is an eTA?

An eTA is a new entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals flying to or transiting through Canada. The authorization is electronically linked to a visitor’s passport and is valid for five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first.

What Does This Mean for Visitors to Canada?

All visitors arriving by air to Canada must familiarize themselves with the newest Canadian entry requirement document, the eTA.

Spread the word about Canada’s newest entry requirement document to create seamless entries for potential visitors by sharing the link to the Government of Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization website or the eTA fact sheet.
