Dear 2017 #SMSociety Delegates,
This is the second pre-conference digest with some essential information for your upcoming trip. If you missed the first digest, it is available at https://socialmediaandsociety.socialmedialab.ca/2017/pre-conference-digest-1/
Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
- New entry requirement now in effect: Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to Canada now need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). **Visa-exempt travellers do not need an eTA when entering Canada by land (e.g. car or bus) or sea (e.g. cruise ship).
- Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa.
- If you need an eTA, you can apply for it electronically before you travel. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta-start.asp
