With a valid eTA you can travel to Canada as often as you wish for short stays (usually for periods of up to six months at a time). You do not need an eTA to travel within Canada.

An eTA does not guarantee entry into Canada. When you arrive in Canada, a border services officer will ask to see your passport and other documents. You must convince the officer that you are admissible to enter Canada.

Applying for an eTA is a simple online process that takes only a few minutes. Most applicants get their eTA approval (via email) within minutes. However, some applications may take several days to process if you are asked to send supporting documents. It is best to obtain an eTA before booking your flight to Canada.

When we approve your eTA, the authorization will be linked to the passport you used to make the application. You are required to present that passport when you check in at the airline counter for your flight to Canada.

The vibrant rhythm of New York’s urban landscapes blend with the Frenchified airs of Montreal and Quebec. On this journey to the east coast of the United States and Canada we will discover the most exuberant nature and the most charming cities of North America. We will start in Boston, the oldest city in the United States, cultured, historic and avant-garde. We will continue on to Quebec, the most European city on the continent, with a strong character and fascinating natural landscapes. Montreal welcomes us with modern museums and an impeccable historic center where we will visit the emblematic Jacques Cartier Square. Our journey through the United States and Canada will continue in Ottawa and Toronto. The moment of adventure will take us to the imposing and fierce Niagara Falls. Finally, in New York, we will travel through lower Manhattan to reach Greenwich Village, Soho and Wall Street. The tree-lined paths of Central Park will lead us to the mythical Fifth Avenue, where we will walk until we reach St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center.

Canada is a country as extensive as it is interesting, full of forests, bears, lakes, squirrels, whales, etc. It is a country that nature lovers will enjoy to the fullest, but also lovers of photography, as each landscape is a scene worthy of portraying.

It is a country with very extreme winter temperatures, so it is admirable how man has adapted to this type of life. The cities are well prepared for the harsh winter, but even so we do not recommend the trip in winter unless it is only to see the big cities and some occasional excursion.

In principle it is not necessary to be vaccinated to travel to Canada, but as in all our trips outside the European Union we advise you to consult with the international vaccination center in the government delegation of your province.
