Important reminders – apply for an eTA

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.

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.
