Anyone wishing to travel to Canada should familiarize themselves quickly with the terms and conditions of the Canadian visa and the ETA application process. Since March 2016, the Electronic Travel Authorization has been required to all travelers. You will find more about this important document hereunder.
Canada ETA Application
The ETA application must be submitted online before your trip to Canada. This is possible through official websites, but also through unofficial websites that offer ETA mediation. In the case of a physical or mental handicap, permission to enter the Canadian soil can also be obtained from another representative. It is crucial to know that the permit issued is not a pass so, some travelers may be denied the right to enter Canada. The final decision is always taken by Canadian immigration officials at the airport. Find more about it on https://www.travel-authorization.co.uk/eta-visa-application-canada.htm.
Requirements for Canada ETA Application
Canada has tightened its entry rules because of the increased risk of terrorist attacks around the world. Nationals of the eligible countries do not need a visa. Only a passport or even a temporary passport is required, as well as a Canada ETA. The identity card is not recognized. Children and babies also need their own passport and ETA. All travel documents must obviously be valid for the duration of the stay which must not exceed 6 months.
This electronic travel authorization is required for entry by air. The ETA regulation applies without exception to travelers from almost all European countries. However, it is not required for entry by sea or by land. Travelers who already have a valid visa do not need an ETA. Flight attendants who are in Canada for up to 24 hours due to transit business trips also do not require an authorization.
Canada ETA Validity Period and Fees
The Canada ETA request is subject to a fee of approximately EUR 5. And the travel document is granted for a period of two years. ETA is linked to the applicant’s travel documents. If a new passport is to be issued within the two-year validity period, the ETA also expires and must be renewed.
Upon entering the Canadian territory by air, travelers must be able to demonstrate that they do not intend to work, that they have sufficient financial means for the duration of the trip and will leave Canada in safe at the end of the trip. Therefore, you should be able to show your credit card, travel documents, the address of the hotels you have booked and your return ticket.
