Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, Sean Fraser made an official statement on the addition of 13 more countries to eTA program of Canada on 6th June 2023. The list of 13 countries includes three Caribbean islands, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Kitts & Nevis, and St. Lucia as well. These three countries are popular for their Citizenship by Investment Programs for more than a decade now. This is such significant and happy news for foreign investors who already hold passports from any of the above-mentioned countries that now they are eligible to travel to Canada without a visa but only with an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization).
This major amendment implies on travelers who have the above-mentioned countries’ passports and have been granted a 10 years Canadian visa at any time. Traveling to Canada without a visa sounds like a dream which is now a reality for global citizens from Antigua & Barbuda, St. Kitts & Nevis, and St. Lucia.
eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) for Visa-Free Travel to Canada:
eTA is an entry requirement to secure the boundaries of a specific country. It is to ensure that the visitor has legal permission to enter the country. This is exactly not a Visa but serves the same purpose in a more convenient manner. eTA is applicable for a specific time frame and before it expires, the visitor needs to leave the country. The best part about eTA is that it’s a fast process. You can apply through your mobile and laptop screens and get approval within a few minutes.
