Tips to get your eTA to Canada approved (that actually works!)

On the other hand, you must be sure of the reason for your trip, because even though the e-visas are similar, it is important to adhere to the law. You can apply for a tourism or business permit, both enable you to stay in Canada for 90 days, but if you are going to meetings or business events, you need to apply for the business eTA.
