Questions?

iVisa review your documents and assist you during the application process to avoid rejection. But if the Canadian government rejects or cancels your application, you are eligible for a full refund of the iVisa processing fee related to the number of rejected applicants. Otherwise, we do not refund the government fees.

You may consider re-applying for the Canada ETA, depending on the reasons for cancellation or rejection.

You don’t need to apply for a Canada ETA if you have a US Green Card. Since April 26, 2022, lawful permanent residents of the U.S. can enter Canada presenting only a valid passport from their country of nationality and a valid Green Card.
Government agencies do not inform us of the reasons behind the decisions, but certain factors can result in a rejected application. For example, providing a passport number that was reported lost or stolen, having overstayed in Canada on a previous visit, having a previous visa denial, engaging in unauthorized work on a previous trip, and having connections with criminal or terrorist organizations.
No, it’s not because the Canada eTA is electronically linked to the traveler's passport. This travel authorization is valid for up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first. So if you get a new passport, you need to get a new eTA.
No, the Canada eTA is exclusively to enter the country by air.
At iVisa, we understand that your time is valuable, and we strive to provide you with the fastest service possible. Our processing times are estimated based on the average duration it takes governments to process visa applications. These estimated times begin from the moment we receive all the correct information for your application until you receive your visa. While we work diligently to expedite the process, it’s important to note that we are reliant on the processing times set by the government authorities.
