The application of eTA Canada is suitable for temporary entry into Canada for up to 6 months. Those who do not have an internet connection can use the services of our website to get one. This service may be associated with a small fee. People with mental or physical disabilities have the option of hiring a representative to obtain an entry permit for them in an alternative way.
How the eTA application works
The eTA Canada application form is available in English on our website. Incorrect statements can result in a delay or complete rejection. To prevent this possibility, the data accuracy when filling in the form is essential.
An eTA (electronic travel authorization) is an electronic travel authorization that is required by any visa-free foreign citizen who travels to Canada by plane. Although you can apply for an eTA at any time, we recommend that every traveler applies for it immediately after you have decided to travel to Canada.
You must have received an eTA permit before entering Canada. Otherwise, your entry will be refused. If you are entering Canada by sea or land (car, bus or on foot), you do not need an eTA. Once approved by the Canadian government, your eTA is valid for five years. However, since the eTA and your passport are linked in the Canadian government system, your eTA will lose its validity as soon as your passport expires within five years.

What do I need to apply for an eTA?
You can easily apply for an eTA online. All you need is your passport, a credit card and your email address. Your passport must be valid for at least one day after you leave Canada. To use our application service, you must agree to our terms of service and provide truthful information. If the information you provide is incorrect, the Canadian government will most likely reject your eTA.
How long is the processing time of an eTA application?
The process is usually completed within 72 hours. However, we recommend applying for an eTA as early as possible. (The exact date of arrival or departure is not necessary when submitting the application)
What happens if I don’t get an eTA?
You cannot enter Canada by plane without an eTA.
What happens if my eTA application is rejected? Can I still travel to Canada?
When your eTA application has been approved, you will receive an email with your eTA information including your eTA number. If your eTA application is rejected, you will need to apply for a Canadian visa.
Can I apply for an eTA for someone else?
Yes, but only one eTA can be requested per person.
I have given incorrect information in my application, now what?
If the information from your eTA application does not match the data from your passport, you will be refused to enter Canada. If you have noticed that you have entered incorrect data, we ask you to submit your application again. You can contact us via our contact page.
What if the information in my passport has changed or I have renewed my passport?
Since your approved eTA and the passport are linked, the validity of the eTA expires as soon as information in the passport changes. In this case, please apply for a new eTA with the current data from your passport.
I would like to cancel my application. What should I do?
Once the application is forwarded to the Canadian government system, the application can no longer be withdrawn or canceled. Due to this regulation, cancellations or repayments are excluded from our service.
Since an eTA for French citizens must be applied for at least 72 hours before departure to Canada, we recommend that you apply as early as possible. After submitting your application on our website, we will send you a confirmation email for your application and then the eTA approval.
If you do not receive any emails from us, please contact us via our support center with the following data:
- Full name,
- and passport number.
Please make sure that your data matches your passport. Otherwise, we cannot confirm your personal identification.
