It is quite easy to get an online eTA for Canada, as you just need to complete the online form and
provide your personal details, passport details and answer eligibility questions. The form should
only take around ten minutes to complete, and you will need your valid passport, a card to pay for
your application and an email address for your confirmation to be sent to.
Based on the information that you provide, a decision will be made whether to approve your eTA or
not and you will receive a notification. If your eTA is approved then it will be electronically
linked to your passport to show that you have the relevant authorisation to visit Canada. You are
then able to use the eTA for travel throughout the period that it is valid (five years) as long as
your passport is still valid.
