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.
To request an invitation letter, please send an email to: email@example.com
