Find out if you need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visitor visa

 

Starting March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

Exceptions include U.S. citizens and foreign nationals with a valid visa.

Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, are not eligible to apply for an eTA and are strongly encouraged to travel with a valid Canadian passport.

All travellers must present acceptable travel documents and identification must be presented at the border.

 

NEED A VISA OR AN eTA? 

 

We strongly suggest that you begin the process as soon as possible to avoid delays.

It is the sole responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa or an eTA.

You can request a Visa letter during the registration process.

The organizers will not provide financial support. 

Please check with the Canadian embassy or consulate for the specific requirements for your country.
