If you love to travel you definitely need to go to Canada. This big, wild country is always opened for tourists and now, it is not necessary to obtain a normal tourist visa at the embassy.
Instead, you only need to fill the short online form and get eTA Canada.
ETA is an Electronic Permission that enables the citizens of chosen countries to enter Canadian territory without holding a normal visa. At the same time, it is an obligatory document, which you must have when you enter the Canadian territory by plane.
Requirements for Maltese citizens
When you want to go to Canada, you need to meet a few requirements. First of all, you cannot be recorded for any crimes or any serious abuses. If you are, you will not be let into the Canadian territory.
Of course, there are some exceptions – you shouldn’t have problems with entering the Canadian territory when your offences are not serious.
For example, the speeding ticket should not be a problem. However, if your situation is not clear, you will be asked to send some additional documents and the time of processing your application might be delayed a little bit.
The second important thing is to have a passport, which validity is at least 6 months.
It is essential because your passport is connected to eTA. That’s why if you lose your passport or there are any changes to it, you need to apply for a new eTA.
When you land you just need to show your passport to the border officer at the airport.
Please keep in mind that eTA is valid only when you plan to go to Canada for tourist or business purposes. This visa is valid for 5 years and during that time you can enter the Canadian territory as many times as you want.
