Are you planning to travel to Canada? We expect Mexicans to submit one special permission which allows them to enter this North American country and which must be requested before the Canadian authorities.
But do not worry, we explain what “Canada Electronic Travel Permit” (eTA) how to process it and how much it costs.
What do I need to travel to Canada?
To enter Canada and enjoy its landscape and cosmopolitan life, Mexicans must have a valid passport and even if they are exempt from processing a visa if they must have an eTA license (‘Canada Electronic Travel Authorization’).
This permit is personal and non-transferable, so if you are traveling with minors you will need to process a permit for each of them.
In addition, in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, Mexicans must have a Canada Medical Travel Certificate (ArriveCAN), which can be obtained by filling out the eTA form, as well as a vaccination test and a negative test of covid -19 with a maximum validity of 72 hours.
What is eTA and why do I need it?
It’s about one compulsory immigration permit for all citizens of countries that are exempt from visas who want to travel into Canada by air and can be obtained online by filling out a form (Mexico is on the list).
This permit is electronically connected to the passport. Once the application has been approved, the carrier can travel to Canada several times for 5 consecutive years.
