Early Electronic Travel Authorization Enrolment for Mexican Citizens
Starting 25 November 2016 Mexican citizens can apply for an electronic travel authorization (eTA). After the visa requirement is lifted on 1 December 2016, Mexican citizens can fly to Canada or transit through Canada with an eTA. However, before 1 December 2016 Mexican citizens are still required to obtain a Temporary Resident Visa.
From 25 November 2016 to 1 December 2016 Mexican citizens can no longer apply for a Temporary Resident Visa. The only available option is to apply for eTA and travel to Canada or transit through Canada after 1 December 2016. Mexicans, however, who posses valid visas do not need an eTA.
