eTA - Electronic Travel Authorization

Canada has recently introduced the eTA (similar to the USA’s ESTA system) and you may be required to submit an online application in advance of travelling to the country.

To apply, you’ll need to log on to the Government of Canada website using the following link http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp

The cost for an eTA is around $7.

It’s important to use the official link provided above. There are other links on the internet through which you can obtain the eTA but costs are much higher (around 40 Euros).
