Canada – Electronic Travel Authorisation
Australians travelling to Canada require pre-arrival clearance. The Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is compulsory for travellers who do not require a visa to enter Canada and currently costs CAD$7 per person.
The eTA is valid for up to five years. Travellers apply online, providing basic personal information similar to what is currently collected when arriving in Canada.
The eTA is convenient and paperless, which means most visa-exempt nationals who wish to travel to Canada will have their eTA granted within minutes of applying.
Having obtained an eTA, travellers to Canada can expect faster service upon arrival at the border.
