Do Canadian citizens need a UK ETA?

By the end of 2024, travelers from visa-exempt countries like Canada will need to obtain a UK ETA before embarking on their travels to the United Kingdom.

Currently, Canadians can enter the UK without a visa, enjoying easy access to tourism or business. However, the British Home Office has introduced the UK ETA to bring about a more secure and efficient travel process. This change aims to enhance border security and ensure better monitoring of visitor flow and origins.

This shift towards electronic travel authorizations is not unique to the UK. It's similar to systems such as the United States ESTA. These systems contribute to more secure and streamlined international travel, benefiting both travelers and host nations.

Opting to use our platform to handle your UK ETA application offers a supportive and easy experience. We focus on making the process user-friendly and clear. Our team ensures that every part of your application meets the UK's criteria perfectly.

Curious about your likelihood of obtaining a UK ETA? Discover your chances with this helpful tool:
