Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is an ETA for Mexicans?

Canada and Mexico are strategic, North American partners with strong economic, political, social and cultural ties, this is why both Governments insisted on the importance of a renewed strategic partnership to strengthen the economic opportunity and respect for our shared environment. Both Canada and Mexico agree that now is the time to bring students together, expand business relationships, and create sustainable economic growth.

All citizens from countries that qualify for the Canadian ETA need to apply online before they enter Canada. The ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is a document electronically linked to the traveler's passport and is valid for 5 years after issued or until passport expires, whichever comes first.

How long can Mexicans stay in Canada with an ETA?

All Mexican citizens can remain 180 days Per Entry in Canada.

What documents are required for Mexicans?

When applying online you don't need too many documents. And in the case of this ETA you only need a valid passport. Just remember that in order to provide you the online document properly you just have to give us:

  • A valid e-mail address
  • A Debit/credit card account or Paypal account

What are the processing fees and also the processing times for this ETA?

We have to mention these factors together because the fees will always depend on the processing time.

iVisa.com provides three excellent options for Mexican citizens, and you can choose the one that suits you best according to your needs. Keep in mind that the faster you need your application form to be processed, the higher the price you'll have to pay. Here is what you can select:

  • Super Rush – this is the quickest available option iVisa.com can offer. It is great if you want to apply on your way to the airport. Your ETA will be ready within just 6 hours, and it costs USD $129.49.

How long does it take to apply for a Canadian ETA?

It depends on the type of processing you decide. But the best option is to apply online, which could take you no more than 15 minutes.

How is the Canadian ETA application for Mexicans?

Instead of applying for a tourist visa at the Canadian embassy, you will be able to apply for the ETA online. You will get the ETA via email in PDF format, and since it's electronically linked to your passport, you won't receive a visa sticker as the traditional visas.

How many times can I enter Canada with an ETA?

Your Canadian ETA has Multiple Entry. You can enter more than once to Canada with your mexican passport.

I am traveling with a child, Does he/she need an ETA?

Yes. All foreigners, regardless of their age, will need the ETA when they enter Canada.

Must I apply for an ETA each time I travel to Canada?

No necessarily. Your Canadian ETA will be valid for 5 years after issued or until passport expires, so you're able to travel to Canada in that period of time with just one ETA.

How can I apply for my family?

You're also able to apply for your family if they're Mexicans, but remember that you'll need their documents for each step, including all the permissions required.
