I am going to Canada for a job interview. I am a little confused about the formalities.
The official Canadian website http://www.cic.gc.ca/ suggests that Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is applicable to my country. I have applied for an eTA today and got it within seconds -- so far so good.
Meanwhile, my country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicates that while eTA applies for tourists, a visa is needed for business travelers. However, I cannot find a corresponding statement on the Canadian website. It seems that both tourism and business works under eTA.
Moreover, I am not sure whether I qualify as a tourist or a business traveler if I am only going for a job interview (will stay 2-3 days).
- Going for a job interview to Canada, do I qualify as a tourist or a business traveler?
- Is eTA enough or do I need a visa?
(Reminder: eTA is applicable to my country and I just got it approved.)
