Visa Information

Travelling to Canada (International Delegates – Non-US Citizens)
Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). This applies to visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid Canadian visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed.

On March 15, 2016, this entry requirement became mandatory and travelers will need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
