Important reminders – apply for an eTA
Protect yourself from eTA scams
If you stay longer than allowed, or work or study in Canada without the right permit, you could be committing fraud. If someone tells you to misrepresent or lie about your intentions, they’re putting you at risk.
One person at a time
You can only apply and pay for one person at a time. For example, for a family of three, you will need to complete and submit the form three times.
An eTA doesn’t allow you to work in Canada
Most people need a work permit to work in Canada. If we approve your work permit, we’ll automatically issue you an eTA. You don’t need to apply separately for an eTA.
An eTA doesn’t allow you to study in Canada
Most people need a study permit to study in Canada. If we approve your study permit, we’ll automatically issue you an eTA. You don’t need to apply separately for an eTA.
Print your receipt
Make sure you print your receipt right away. You won’t be able to print it later or receive a copy of it.
Email updates and approval
You will hear from us by email only. Check your junk mail folder.
Extend session if you need more time
Your information can’t be saved. You have limited time to complete the form; however, you can extend your session if you need a few more minutes. When the “Session timeout warning” box appears, click the “Continue session” button. Review the help document to make sure you have everything you need to complete the form.
