Canadian Visa for Brazilian Citizens

Brazilian citizens who wish to travel to Canada by air need to apply for an eTA permit. ETA is short for Electronic Travel Authorization. An e-Visa permit is easily obtainable online; you can make your application within a couple of minutes from home.

When Brazilian citizens travel to Canada by air, a valid passport and a valid eTA permit are necessary to have.

ETA requirements for Brazilians are a bit more complicated; thus, keep on reading to learn more about eTA, conditions to meet to apply, and how to file your application.

ETA requirements for Brazilian citizens

First, let's go through the basic visa requirements that everyone has to meet before applying for an eTA to Canada. You have to have:

  • a valid passport: passport validity has to exceed at least 6 months forth from the planned trip to Canada.
  • an active e-mail address: make sure to provide an e-mail address that you have access to. Once approved, ETA arrives straight at your e-mail boxin a PDF version; thus, it's crucial to have access to your e-mail.
  • a clean criminal record: another essential condition to meet before applying is having a clean criminal record of any serious crimes. Non-serious offences are not taken into account; you can file your application with a speeding ticket or if the statute of limitations of the offence committed has expired.

Please note that if your situation is unclear, you first may have to send in additional documents to make your application more transparent. The application process may become longer in that case.

Unfortunately, Brazilian citizens need to meet additional visa requirements to be able to apply online for an eTA to Canada. Please make sure that you meet at least one condition of the following:

  • you are a Green Card holder (have permanent residency in the United States)
  • you have held a Canadian visa in the last 10 years
  • you are currently a holder of a non-immigrant visa in the US
