An ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is a new entry requirement for visa-exempt nationals who will arrive in Canada by air. From March 15, 2016, visa-exempt country nationals who fly/transit Canada will need the ETA. Exceptions include USA citizens and travelers with a valid visa issued by the Canadian Embassy.
No documents are required to submit an ETA application. You will only need to have a valid passport along with an email address and a Credit/Debit card or PayPal account for payment.
The Canada ETA is valid for 5 years after issue. This means you must enter Canada within 5 years. In addition, it is a multiple entry visa and allows for a maximum stay of 180 days per entry.
