TRAVEL DOCUMENTS AND VISAS

ALERT:  An eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is an entry requirement that came into effect August 2015.  Anyone coming to Canada from a visa-exempt country needs to apply for an eTA.  The eTA costs $7.00 and allows for pre-screening of visa-exempt nationals.  Please see the link for details related to the eTA:   http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp 

To determine whether you need a visa, go to: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp

US citizens carrying a valid US passport do not require a visa or an eTA.
