Canada Visa Application

Canada is a tourist destination because its vast territory has many species of flora and fauna, and spectacular geographic scenery to discover. The good news for nationals of some countries is that Canada does not require a tourist visa to enter its territory, but rather an electronic authorization or ETA

In general, foreigners wishing to visit Canada must apply for and receive a temporary stay visa or electronic travel authorization (“eTA”) before coming to Canada.
