Visa Information

ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization)

Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.

For more information, please read here.

If you are a dual Canadian citizen used to travelling to or transiting through Canada by air with a non-Canadian passport, you are no longer able to do so as of November 10, 2016. You will need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight.

We encourage participants from countries that require a visa to apply as early as possible. Visa processing times vary by country. Please consult this website.
