Traveling to Toronto
Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an eTA, for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include US citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land and sea) have not changed. Starting 1 August 2015, eligible travellers can apply online for an eTA. On 15 March 2016, this entry requirement will become mandatory, and travellers will need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
