- is an entry requirement for travellers from visa-exempt countries who fly to or transit through Canada,
- is valid for up to five years or until the passport you used to apply for your eTA expires, and
- allows you to travel to Canada many times, and stay for up to six months (the border officer will tell you how long you can stay).
The eTA is a new entry requirement for visa-exempt, non-U.S. foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air – land, sea and rail modes are not in scope.
Implementation of the eTA program will allow Canada to pre-screen eTA-required travellers to ensure that they are admissible to Canada.
