PDU - Visa lift on Bulgaria and Romania – December 1, 2017

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

As of December 1, 2017, Canada is lifting the visa requirement for Bulgarian and Romanian nationals, who now require an electronic travel authorization (eTA) to travel to Canada by air.

The program delivery instructions have been updated to remove any mention of Bulgarian and Romanian nationals as being eligible for eTA expansion and to include Bulgaria and Romania in the list of countries whose citizens require an eTA.
