(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Vancouver, British Columbia Aug 30, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Entering Canada for foreigners is a complicated process and requires a mandatory visa. However, the government started issuing an electronic visa named Electronic Travel Authorization or eTA in 2015 which is now available for all foreigners that are trying to visit Canada. This visa application process can be done online which is what makes it even more convenient and easy.
This eTA visa is required for travelers entering Canada for business, tourism, or transit visits under six months. It is the new travel requirement for travelers who are entering the country by air, where the authorization is linked directly with the visitors’ passports. It also holds the official validity of the time period of 5 years. The visa is applicable for selective countries that include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, South Korea, etc. There are other countries from where citizens can apply for this authorization as well for which you check out the list at: https://www.canada-visa-online.org/canada-visa-eligibility.
The applicants of the eligible countries must apply for the authorization via the online portal, a minimum of 3 days before the date of arrival. However, the citizens of the United States do not require this Canadian Electronic Travel Authorization to enter the territory. For US citizens it is not mandatory to have either a Canadian visa or Canada eTA to enter the country.
Citizens who are of other nationalities, but hold a valid United States Green Card are also eligible for applying for the Canadian eTA. Moreover, this easy process for visa application also secures all the personal information of applicants via encrypting all the layers of online portals in transit and in-flight. Once the information is no longer required, the company destroys it all at once.
Visitors can stay for 6 months with this electronic authorization in the country. However, this duration will be decided depending on the reason for the arrival of the foreigners. At the border, the officials will stamp the duration and confirm it on the passport. In the time period, till the Canadian eTA is valid, travelers can use it for multiple visits to the country.
