Are you planning to visit Canada soon? There are a lot of exciting things to do in the Great White North aside from visiting the Niagara Falls. Interesting activities to do in Canada include howling with wolves in Algonquin Park, Walk the ocean floor at The Bay of Fundy, discover the Dinosaur Valley in Drumheller, and discover the history of the Vikings in L’anse aux Meadows.
But before you experience everything that Canada has to offer, you should go first and get a Canada eTA application. This application is used to get an Electronic Travel Authorization for foreigners travelling by air who don’t need to have a visa to visit Canada. If you have no idea if your country is not required to have a visa, you can visit Canada’s website to see their complete list. You can also find out if your country is required to have an eTa to make sure if you need one or not.
Requirements When Applying For an eTA
Here are the requirements that you will need to prepare for your application:
-Credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or pre-paid Visa/Mastercard/American Express)
-Debit card (JCB, Visa, or Interac)
Tips When Applying For an eTA
-Canada eTA application is different from a visitor’s visa. You must also apply online.
-When getting your application, make sure that you already have everything that you need especially your credit cards and your passport.
-When filling out the form, you will have to provide the information of your travel. Whether you are travelling by land or air, which country you are from, some biographical information, and your passport information. Keep in mind that you have to give correct details and information to avoid having problems with your application.
-After paying the fee for your eTA application, you can now submit it. Take note that payment is made online and the fee is only 7 Canadian Dollars as of 2015.
-After you’ve done everything above, the last thing to do is to wait for their response. And what’s good with this application is that compared to a visa application, it is a whole lot faster to get a response from them. You can receive response as quickly as 5 minutes.
Electronic Travel Authorization allows Canada to screen travelers before they arrive. Although it is an extra step for you to take before finally getting to Canada, it is not really a big hassle since their online application is made simple and convenient for excited travelers just like you.
