Canadian Visa for Spanish Citizens

Canadian eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) was introduced in 2016 as a system aiming to facilitate the initial verification of visitors entering Canada by air.

As one of the eligible nations for eTA, Spanish citizens can travel to Canada for the purpose of leisure, business, or transit. eTA serves as an electronic equivalent of a regular visa and, at the same time, eliminates the need to visit the Canadian embassy located in the applicant's home country.

eTA cannot be issued at the airport, so you must know that you won't be let on the plane without a valid Canadian eTA!

Whether you plan to make a tourist trip, visit family and friends, take part in an international conference, or make business negotiations, eTA is a perfect solution for you!

The application process can be completed entirely online from the comfort of your home or office as long as you have access to any working electronic device and Internet connection.

You don't need more than 15 minutes to submit your application, while the approval of your e-visa shouldn't take up more than 3 business days!

Don't hesitate to book a flight, next apply for eTA Canada, and save your precious time!
