Passport & visa requirements

All visitors to Canada and the United States will require appropriate ID, passports, and documentation for all family members. We strongly recommend making copies of all travel documents and keeping the copies in a separate location from your originals, such as your luggage, in case of loss or theft.

Entry into Canada

Depending on your citizenship, you may require a visa to enter Canada. Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Some international travellers who fly to Canada will need to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), prior to boarding a flight to Canada. Learn if you need an eTA for entry into Canada. We strongly recommend that you check for additional entry requirements for Canada.
