Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
Canada has introduced a new entry requirement, known as an eTA, for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed.
This entry requirement is mandatory and travellers need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada. Eligible travellers can apply online for an eTA.
Visitors to Canada require a valid passport and many require a visitor’s visa. For information on visa requirements and exemptions please check with the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate.
To check online – go to: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp and click “Visit” from the menu.
Attendees from the USA may check entry / exit requirements to Canada outlined in the U.S. Department of State Consular Information website. Proof of citizenship must be provided.
An official Letter of Invitation to obtain a Visa and authorization to attend ISSTD 2019 will be issued ONLY after registration has been completed and full payment received by the Conference Secretariat.
