Travel to or via Canada – new entry requirement for Mexican citizens - January 5
Travel to or via Canada – new entry requirement for Mexican citizens
November 30, 2016
Effective December 1st, 2016, Mexican citizens will no longer need a visa to visit Canada. They will, however, need to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before they can board a flight to Canada. The eTA was introduced as an entry requirement by the Government of Canada and applies to certain visa-exempt foreign nationals* travelling to or transiting Canada by air.
If you are a Mexican citizen and wish to complete your application for an eTA Opens in New Window, you will need your passport, a credit card and an email address. An eTA costs $7 CAD and is valid for up to five years.
Note that, if you already have a valid visa, you can continue travelling to Canada with that visa until it expires, even after December 1, 2017.
Severe Weather and Natural Event Policies: If your itinerary includes a destination affected by severe weather or a natural event, Air Canada has implemented policies to make it easier for you to change your plans.
