If your application’s successful, we’ll email you your ETA and ArriveCAN documents, which you should print off ready for your arrival.
Yes, every traveller entering Canada needs a visa of some description, regardless of whether they’re an adult or a minor, so children travelling with you will each need an ETA to gain entry; even if one or more of them are travelling on a parent’s passport.
It must be valid for six months or more beyond the date of your arrival in Canada.
Within the fixed five-year timeframe of your ETA, you can use that ETA to enter the country every time – so long as you don’t exceed the 180-day limit per entry.
No, that shouldn’t be necessary. A printed-out copy of the ETA is necessary when you arrive in the country, so you can hand it to an immigration official for them to check. Without any visa document, you won’t be granted entry.
Here at FastTrackVisa.com, we use only the very best and safest digital practices to keep confidential all personal data you share with us when you apply for any visa product.
The situation in each country during the Covid 19 pandemic is changing rapidly. Please check with the foreign office of the country in order to ascertain the most up to date entry requirement for vaccination and Covid tests.
Available since 2016 for all visa-exempt foreign nationals who’ll be aiming to enter Canada by air, the Electronic Transit Authorization (ETA) is available for either business or leisure travellers. An ETA won’t be granted to anyone who holds a valid visa issued by a Canadian Embassy.
You won’t need to include copies of specific documents, which you’ve obtained previously, with your ETA application. However, when you complete your application, you will need to fill out an ArriveCAN health declaration form along with it.
Once obtained, an ETA can be used multiple times to enter Canada over a fixed five-year period, enabling a stay of up to 180 days per entry. Should your passport expire before your ETA, however, you’ll need to obtain another ETA for your new passport, as the two are electronically linked.
You’ll need a valid passport (valid for six months after your date of arrival in Canada), an email address and a credit/ debit card.
Should your application be successful, it will take us two hours to process your ETA.
Once obtained, an ETA is electronically linked to your passport, when means it will expire at the end of its designated five-year timeframe or when your passport expires, whichever happens first. At which point, if you want still to be able to travel to Canada on an ETA, you’ll have to apply for a new one.
It’s very easy. Select the Canadian ETA as your visa product option on this page, then fill in the application forms for the ETA and ArriveCAN on the next page, uploading digital copies of your passport and a passport photo as you do so. You’ll then need to pay, by credit/ debit card.
You’re strongly advised to apply for the ArriveCAN no later than 72 hours before your departure. By all means apply for it at any point before then.
Yes, you can obtain it for free, but doing so will likely be time-consuming, not least because it can be a challenge to fill in the form without the guidance and support of the likes of us at FastTrackVisa.com.
No, if you’ll be travelling on from the airport within hours and won’t be leaving the international transit area, you won’t need an ArriveCAN.
Yes, all travellers, whether an adult or a minor, need an ArriveCAN to enter Canada. Parents or guardians of minors are, therefore, responsible for applying for and obtaining it for their children.
This depends on the processing time you have chosen. Please refer to the FastTrackVisa website page for that country for more information.
Simply complete the online application form available here, at FastTrackVisa.com. Once it’s been processed, we’ll send you an email with your complete ArriveCAN form so you can print it out, ready for travel.
