How long is Canada eTA valid?

Your Canadian Electronic Travel Authorization is valid for 5 years or until your passport expires. Canada ETA is valid for multiple entries over a period of five years starting from the date of issue or until your passport expires. With an eTA, you are allowed to enter Canada for stays that do not exceed 6 months per entry.

If your passport has expired you will need to renew the document and apply for a new eTA, the same rule applies for your eTA, if your travel authorization has expired you must apply for a new one. We always like to remind our clients to follow the expiry dates of their passports as well as the eTA expiration date.

Before applying for your eTA please make sure you qualify for all the requirements and answer the questions while applying truthfully, travelers have to make sure that they do not overstay the 6 months period to avoid any inconveniences. Once the eTA is approved, unfortunately, the corrections are no longer possible. If you made an error while applying for your Canadian ETA or forgot to mention some personal information, you must apply again.

Our team is always ready to help our clients before applying as well as answering any questions regarding Canadian ETA after receiving your eTA approval.
