Find out if you need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visitor visa

Since March 15, 2016, Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and foreign nationals with a valid visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, are not eligible to apply for an eTA and need to travel with a valid Canadian passport. All travellers must present acceptable travel documents and identification must be presented at the border.




We strongly suggest that you begin the process as soon as possible to avoid delays. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa or an eTA. You can request a Visa letter during the registration process. The organizers will not provide financial support.

Please check with the Canadian embassy or consulate for the specific requirements for your country. List of Canadian embassies and consulates:  http://
