The citizens of the UK are exempt from applying for a visa if they want to travel to Canada. However, just like all the other visa-exempt nationalities, except for the nationals of the US, as a UK citizen, you need to apply for a Canada ETA before departure. That is if you plan to travel by air. If you enter Canada by land from the US or you go by sea, such a document is not required.

This process replaces the traditional visa application, which streamlines visitors experience when entering the country. The eTA replaces all forms of tourist visas, business visas and visitor visas.

Planning to visit Canada? You must have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) if you are a citizen of a visa-exempt country.

The beauty of the eTA is that travellers do not have to go through the sometimes lengthy process of applying for a visa at a Canadian embassy. Instead, if they are citizens of a visa-exempt country, they may simply apply online for a travel authorization. Once granted the eTA, travellers may visit Canada for 180 days or less.

What Happens When You Land in Canada?

While a valid eTA allows you to board your flight to Canada, when you arrive, we’ll check your identity to make sure that you’re the same person who was approved to travel to Canada. There are a few standard entry procedures you’ll go through. 

If you enter Canada at one of the 10 major Canadian airports

  • Your fingerprints will be checked automatically at a primary inspection kiosk.

  • The system will check your identity against the information collected when your application was submitted.

If you enter Canada at smaller airports and all land ports of entry

  • Your fingerprints may be checked if we refer you to a secondary inspection, where a border services officer will use a fingerprint verification device to check your fingerprints.

Have your travel documents ready for inspection by the officer from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA.) If travelling with minors, make sure they also have the same travel documents ready. 

If you pass the identity check and meet the entry requirements, the border services officer may stamp your passport or let you know how long you can stay in Canada. You’re normally allowed to stay in Canada for up to 6 months.

In some cases, the officer may limit or extend your time in Canada to cover the planned purpose of your visit. Ask questions if you’re not sure about something.

You won’t be allowed into Canada if you give false or incomplete information so be open and honest with the immigration officers. You must convince the officer that:

  • you’re eligible for entry into Canada

  • you’ll leave Canada at the end of your approved stay

What to bring to the airport

Once your eTA has been approved, an email will be sent to you confirming its status. You do not need to print this email when you go to the airport as it will be linked to the passport you which used to apply. 

You need to present this passport when you check-in to your flight to Canada. The airline staff will scan your passport to confirm that you have a valid eTA. If you do not have one, you won’t be able to board your flight.

This makes a trip to Canada incredibly easy. All you need is your passport and your luggage and you’re ready to go.

Canada eTA FAQs

Travel Authorization to Canada

Planning to visit Canada? You must have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) if you are a citizen of a visa-exempt country. 

The beauty of the eTA is that travellers do not have to go through the sometimes lengthy process of applying for a visa at a Canadian embassy. Instead, if they are citizens of a visa-exempt country, they may simply apply online for a travel authorization. Once granted the eTA, travellers may visit Canada for 180 days or less.

About the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) Program

The eTA program came about as an attempt by the Canadian government to pre-screen travellers coming from visa-exempt countries. Before the eTA program was in effect, a traveler arriving in Canada who did not meet entry requirements would not be allowed into the country. Then followed the task of returning that person to his or her country. 

The eTA program circumvents that situation by ensuring that travellers meet entry requirements before they leave home.

Who Needs a Canada eTA?

Anyone who comes from a visa-exempt country and plans to travel to Canada by air needs to have an eTA before boarding your flight to Canada or entering the country through other ways.

All air passengers, including children, must have the eTA. Ground travellers going into Canada from the United States do not need to have an eTA.

Travellers coming from countries that are not part of the visa exempt program must secure regular visas at a Canadian embassy or consulate.

About Visa-Exempt Countries

Fifty-two countries are exempt from the visa requirement for Canada. Instead, their citizens may enter Canada with an Electronic Travel Authorization. These 52 countries are economically and politically stable and do not pose any threat to Canada’s security

Do Children Need an eTA?

Yes. Children from visa-exempt countries must receive travel authorization.
