People from the UK, don’t require a visa to travel to Canada. However, just like all the other visa-exempt nationalities, except for the nationals of the US, as a UK citizen, you must apply for a Canada ETA before departure. That is, of course, if you plan to travel by air. If you enter Canada by land from the US or you go by sea, such a document is not required.
What are the requirements?
It is necessary that you get all the documents for your Canada ETA. But you do not have anything to worry about. The requirements are easy to achieve, and the chances of you already meeting all of them are pretty high. Check all the documents that you must need below:
Valid passport – this type of document is very vital because it needs to be valid for at least 6 more months from the first day that you are in the Canadian territory.
An e-mail address – all communication will be via email and this is why you must ensure that your email works.
Means of payment – for your ease, we have 3 options so that you can pay with your credit or debit card or even PayPal.
