Travelling to the other continent is easy and for Romanian citizens, it does not require getting a standard visa anymore. You only need to apply for eTA Canada.
This electronic permission allows you to enter Canada without holding a standard visa from the embassy. The same, eTA is an obligatory secure document for everyone who decides to travel to Canada by plane, for tourists or for people travelling for buisness purposes.
How to apply for eTA
All you have to do is go to our website and find the button “apply”. Then you can fill the online questionnaire with your personal details, putting it into a blank field.
You will be asked for basic information, like a birthplace, your nationality, and the reason for your travel. Remember, that you need to apply for eTA also when you are only passing trough Canada while going to the other destination – you will need to choose a transit visa.
After that, you also need to put in the online form your passport details. Remember to check carefully all the information you provide, otherwise, there can be a problem with processing your eTA.
Your passport has to be biometrical, which means that it has to have an electronic chip.
After completing the whole form, you will be redirected to the payment method.
You can pay for your eTA by credit or debit card, but we accept as well other payment methods.
ETA will cost you 49 Euros only, and with this document, you can enter Canada multiple times for 5 years.
However, your maximum stay cannot be longer than 6 months per stay. Ready eTA will be provided directly to your email address. The time of processing your visa is up to 72 hours, however, in most cases eTA is granted within a few hours.
Requirements for Romanian citizens
As Romanian citizens, you have the right to apply for eTA to Canada.
All you need is to have a valid passport, email address and not be listed for any criminal records. This condition is very important – If you have any serious crime or abuses on your account, you will not be let into the Canadian territory.
However, some non-serious offenses don’t count – if you are noted for getting a speeding ticket, you should not have a problem with receiving a visa and travel to Canada. However, if your situation is not clear, you will be asked to provide additional documents.
Thus, your application process can take longer.
Before you will decide to apply, check carefully your passport validity. When you are applying for eTA, your document has to be valid for at least 6 months, but what’s important, all the changes in your passport will require getting a new visa.
ETA is automatically connected to your passport, that’s why when your passport will expire, or you will simply lose your document, you will need to apply for another permission.
Citizens under 18 also need to apply for eTA. If you plan on only crossing Canada for transit, you will need to apply for an eTA as well.
After you will land, you only need to show your passport to the border officer.
Why should you travel to Canada?
For every nature lovers, Canada will be a dream country to travel. This second-largest country in the world has a very low population density and a lot of wild nature.
The remains of an ancient culture, as well as the colonial villages, are some great examples of Canadian heritage. A lot of small villages, which used to be full of life during the famous Gold Rush became now just ghost-cities.
However, if you prefer more modern entertainment, you can simply visit Toronto, Ottawa, Quebeck or other cities in Canada that are full of museums and theatres.
You can travel by train, rent a car or do backpacking staying in some cheap backpackers hostels.
You can also stay in the famous Ice Hotel, located in Quebec – this architecture miracle is made fully out of ice and in the springtime starts to melt a little bit… that’s why if you want to see this extraordinary building and spend the night inside, better go to Canada during winter.
For 5 years you have a lot of opportunities. You will for sure find your own way of traveling inside this beautiful country.
