Visas and passports
The Government of Canada requires that everyone traveling to the country have a valid passport.
Electronic Travel Authorization (AVE) is required for visa-exempt foreign travelers traveling to Canada, except U.S. citizens and travelers with valid visas. The eTA is electronically linked to the passport and is valid for a period of 5 years or until the expiration of the passport. Applying for an eTA online is a simple, inexpensive process that takes just a few minutes.
Please note that residents of certain countries must have a visa to visit or transit through Canada.
Visit the Immigration and Citizenship Canada website to find out if you need a visa or an eTA.
