Unfortunately, all eTA applications must be completed separately for individuals and there is no
family or group application process. Each person, including both adults and children, must have
their own passport and their own eTA application. Once each eTA is approved it will be electronically
linked to the passport of the applicant.
You can fill out eTA applications on behalf of members of your family, specifying the relationship
between you and the applicant. To make your travel arrangements easier, it is better to submit all
of your family applications in the same period of time, rather than filling them in on different
days for example. This should ensure that your validity period for the eTA is the same for each
member of the family. It will also make it easier for you to track the progress of your eTA, as
you can check them all at the same time.
Before you begin completing the applications for your family’s eTAs, you should check that all of
the passports are valid for at least six months and use a reliable, fast internet service to ensure
that you are not slowed down due to connectivity issues.
