Electronic Travel AuthorizationTo give travellers and airlines more time to prepare for changes when flying to or transiting through Canada, the government is extending the leniency period for the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) requirement until November 9, 2016.

Starting November 10, 2016, Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, will need a valid Canadian passport to board their flight to Canada otherwise they will experience delays. All visa-exempt travellers (except United States citizens) will need an eTA to board their flight.

For more information on the eTA requirements, please visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website and/or contact Kylie Marshall at kmarshall@pfcollins.com or +1 709-738-5691.
