Why Visiting Canada?

Canada is a popular country to visit, thanks to its close proximity to the United States, unique urban cities, and photogenic nature-scapes. But if you need convincing, check out these reasons why you need to visit Canada at least once in your lifetime.
Unique cities

Canada is fortunate to have some unique cities spread across its vast land. Winnipeg is known for its affordability; Calgary is popular because it’s the closest major hub to Banff National Park; Ottawa is home to fascinating museums and the Rideau Canal, and Yellowknife is the capital to visit to see the Northern Lights.

Then you have Vancouver, which is definitely the most unique city in Canada. It expertly blends urban city life with its natural surroundings so that you can go from the office to the mountains in less than an hour. Toronto is the fourth biggest city in North America, while Montreal and Quebec City bring European charm to Canada. No matter the cityscape you are searching for, you’ll find it in Canada.

How to Visit Canada?

Most travellers need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to, or transit through, a Canadian airport.

What you need depends on:

  • the type of travel document you will travel with;
  • the country that issued your travel document;
  • your nationality; and
  • how you will travel to Canada.

Yes, most travellers need a visitor visa or an eTA to travel to, or transit through, Canada.

What you need depends on:

the type of travel document you will travel with;
the country that issued your travel document;
your nationality; and
how you will travel to Canad

To apply you must have a valid passport, a valid credit or debit card and an email address. It costs $7 CAD to get an eTA and only takes a few minutes to apply. Approved eTAs are valid for up to five years.a.

You must present the following documents:

  • A copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • A letter of authorization signed by the parent who is not travelling, containing their address and telephone number, in English or French if possible, and
  • A photocopy of the non-accompanying parent’s signed passport or national identity card

If the parents are separated or divorced, and share custody of the child, the parent travelling with the child should carry copies of the legal custody documents.

If the parents are separated or divorced and one of them has sole custody of the child, the letter of authorization may be signed by that parent only and they should bring a copy of the custody papers.

If one of the child’s parents is deceased, the travelling parent should bring a copy of the death certificate.

The document you need to transit through Canada depends on a few factors, including if you plan to visit Canada.
Visa-required travellers

You’re considered a visa-required traveller if you’re from a visa-required country.

You need a visitor visa if:

  • you visit Canada (even if you’re travelling by air and it’s for less than 48 hours)
  • stay in Canada more than 48 hours while transiting, or
  • you’re crossing the border by:
    bus
    car
    train
    boat
    cruise ship

You need a transit visa if:

your international flight stops at a Canadian airport on its way to another country
you’ll be connecting between 2 international flights at a Canadian airport
you’ll transit through Canada in 48 hours or less, and
you don’t have a valid visitor visa

Visa-exempt travellers

You’re considered a visa-exempt traveller if you’re from an eTA-required country.

You need an eTA to transit through Canada by air if you’re from an eTA-required country.

You don’t need an eTA if you’re transiting through Canada and you enter by train, bus, boat or cruise ship. You do need to bring the right travel documents.

No. If you plan to travel to Canada, you need a valid visitor visa OR a valid eTA.

The one you need depends on:

the type of travel document you will travel with;
the country that issued your travel document;
your nationality; and
how you will travel to Canada.

If you already have a valid Canadian visitor visa you don’t need to apply for an eTA – even if you’re eligible for an eTA. You can travel with your visa until it expires.

If you apply for an initial work or study permit before you travel to Canada, you’ll get a visa or an eTA automatically once your work or study permit application is approved. You don’t need to apply for a visa or an eTA, or pay extra fees.
