Here are the key travel documents you might need


A valid passport is a must for international travel. Ensure that your passport will remain valid for at least six months beyond your planned return date from Canada.

Visitor Visa

Depending on your nationality, you might need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) before traveling to Canada. This visa is required for individuals from non-visa-exempt countries who plan to visit for tourism, family visits, or business purposes.

Electronic Travel Authorization

Citizens of visa-exempt countries, excluding U.S. citizens, are required to obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before boarding their flight to Canada. The eTA is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for multiple short visits over a span of up to five years or until your passport expires.

Letter of Invitation

If you're visiting family or friends in Canada, having a letter of invitation from your host can support your application for a visa or entry at the border. This letter should detail the purpose and duration of your visit, as well as the host's contact information.

Proof of Funds

It's important to demonstrate that you have sufficient financial resources to cover your expenses during your stay in Canada. This could include bank statements, employment verification, or other proof of income.

Travel Itinerary

Having a well-organized travel itinerary, including flight details and accommodation bookings, can demonstrate the purpose and duration of your visit.


Depending on your country of residence, you might need to provide biometric data (fingerprints and photograph) as part of the visa application process.

Travel Medical Insurance

While not a mandatory requirement, having travel medical insurance is highly recommended to cover any unexpected medical expenses while you're in Canada.

Passport-sized Photographs

You may need recent passport-sized photographs that meet the specifications outlined by the Canadian authorities.

Remember that entry requirements can change, and processing times for visas and eTAs can vary. It's advisable to start the application process well in advance of your travel date to ensure you have all the necessary travel documents ready. Always verify the most current information on the official Government of Canada website or through the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate.
