  • For people entering the country by air ETA is compulsory since 15 March 2016. You need a valid passport, an email address and a credit card to fulfil the new entry requirements and apply for ETA.
  • On the website www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta-start.asp you can request.
  • Information on your personal and passport data concerning entering … is necessary.
  • If you have problems with the English language you find German instructions on the website as well.
  • The costs for ETA are 7 Canadian dollars, which must be paid by credit card.
  • If the request is approved, ETA remains valid for 5 years. Normally you obtain a notice within a few minutes, whether the request has been approved or not. In exceptional cases, an examination may take up to 72 hours.
  • You must apply for an ETA approval online at least 72 hours before entering.
