The new Electronic Travel Authorization, or Canada eTA, is a quick and easy solution to obtaining a Canada visa and needs to be in your possession prior to boarding the aircraft, otherwise you may not be permitted to board. However, should you be entering the country by air or sea, the normal visa regulations would apply.

Processing times: Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

We cannot provide an exact time value required for an eTA as this program is new and it is yet impossible for us to determine an exact time value for it. We will update this page as we receive new information regarding the fact.
