Canada introduced an entry requirement (eTA) on 15th March 2016 for UK passport holders travelling by air to Canada. Land or Sea passengers are not affected.
However, Canadian authorities have stated that from 15 March 2016 until the autumn of 2016, travellers who don’t have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents (eg a valid passport). During this time, border services officers can let travellers arriving without an eTA into the country as long as they meet the other requirements to enter Canada.
So, as a UK passport holder do I need an eTA or not? Does anyone know if I will have trouble flying to Canada from USA in June if I do not have one?
Surely they should just introduce the eTA with no exceptions. It will cause a lot less confusion!
