Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) in Effect 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).

This new requirement is coming into effect March 16, 2016 so to avoid issues at Canadian borders, be sure to take advantage of the voluntary enrollment period underway and continuing to 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 CIC marketing material posted to the TIAC website.

Basic information and What You Need to Know can be viewed in the linked online video.
