About the Canadian eTA

General Information

With the Canada Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) you can visit Canada as often as you wish for short vacation stays lasting up to six months at a time.

The eTA visa is valid for five years or until your passport expires – whichever comes first.

A Canada eTA is particularly useful for visa-exempt foreign nationals and is only suitable for those coming into Canada by air.

Securing your Canadian eTA is really easy with Visa First.

We will take care of your Canada eTA application from beginning to end, and you will be exploring Canada’s incredible attractions before you know it!

Remember, you will need an eTA before you travel to Canada for your holiday, so be sure to apply before you book your flights or make travel arrangements.


You can apply for eTA Canada if:

  • You hold a passport from an eligible country
  • Your passport must be valid for the entire period of your intended stay in Canada
  • You are entering Canada by air
