The Canada ETA is available for over 50 nationalities, and Brazilians are among them. However, unlike the other nationalities, Brazilian travelers who wish to go to Canada and obtain an ETA before departure belongs to a special category. There is one particular requirement that they must meet to be eligible for electronic authorization. Along with the other requirements, as a Brazilian national, you must have held a Canadian visa in the past 10 years or have a valid US non-immigrant visa.

Furthermore, you should know that Brazilian citizens can obtain a Canada ETA only if they travel by air. If you decide to travel by land or by sea, you need to visit the nearest Canadian diplomatic mission and apply for a consular visa. The rule applies even if you meet the requirement mentioned above.

How can a citizen of Brazil apply for a Canada ETA?

The online application process with iVisa is as simple as it can be. First, you need to ensure that you meet all the requirements. You must provide iVisa with the right documents and information to get the process started. Here are the requirements you must meet:

  • Valid passport – all applicants who wish to obtain an ETA must hold a passport that remains valid for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Canada. Also, keep in mind that an expired passport also means an expired ETA, and a new passport implies a new ETA as well.

  • Email address – since the application process is entirely online, you will receive the ETA via email. That is why you need an address to which you have access.

  • Means of payment – for the same reason as above, you need to have an online means of payment. iVisa accepts multiple methods. You can use a credit/debit card, but PayPal is accepted as well.

  • The special requirement – you must have had a Canadian visa in the last 10 years, or you currently have a valid US non-immigrant visa.

The processing time and price

Your options are as follows:

  • Standard processing – if the circumstances allow it, you can go for the slowest and cheapest option. By choosing the Standard option, you agree to have your application processed within 1 business day. The cost of this option is $19.50.

  • Rush processing – if time is of the issue, you can choose this option and have your Canada ETA in your e-mail inbox in just 2 hours. However, you will be charged $49.50.

  • Super Rush processing – your application is processed within 30 minutes, but the cost goes higher as well. The fee for this option is $69.50.

The bottom line is that a Canada ETA for the citizens of Brazil is available, but you need to make sure that you meet all the requirements. Otherwise, you need to apply for a consular visa.

The ETA is valid for 5 years or until your passport expires if that happens sooner. You can enjoy multiple entries, and you can stay in Canada for up to 180 days at a time.
