Canada’s New Entry Requirements
Starting 10 November 2016, all air travellers, including Canadian citizens, will be required to carry appropriate documents to travel to Canada before they can board their flight, such as:
- a valid Canadian passport;
- a Canadian temporary passport; or
- a Canadian emergency travel document.
Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada warns air travellers that if they do not possess a valid travel document that proves their Canadian citizenship at check-in, they may not be able to board the flight. Exception is for American and American-Canadian citizens who do not need a Canadian passport, a Canadian visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to Canada if they are travelling with a valid US passport.
