Electronic travel authorization (eTA): COVID-19 program delivery
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
COVID-19 border measures have ended
On October 1, 2022, all COVID-19 border requirements, including vaccination, mandatory use of ArriveCAN, and any testing and quarantine or isolation requirements, ended for all travellers entering Canada by land, air or sea.
COVID-19 related PDIs will be updated, removed, or information incorporated into the regular PDIs, as necessary.
These program delivery instructions align with the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) that are in effect from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. Under the current MIs, applicants will continue to submit electronic travel authorization (eTA) applications online and the manual processing of eTA applications that drop out for officer review will continue, to the extent possible.
