Canada: To lift visa restrictions for Mexicans from 1 December

Canada to lift visa restrictions for Mexicans from 1 December

Effective from 1 December, Mexican citizens will no longer need a visa to visit Canada by air and are only required to have an Electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA), which can be applied for online and costs CAD $7. Mexican citizens will still be required to obtain work permission from the Canadian consular post abroad.

Also from 1 May 2017, citizens from Brazil, Bulgaria and Romania who have held a Canadian visa in the past ten years or currently hold a valid U.S. non-immigrant visa can also register for the eTA instead of applying for a visa through a consular office prior to seeking entry to Canada. Those who do not meet the eligibility criteria for an eTA will still require a valid visa to travel to Canada.
