What is Temporary Resident Visa?
Travelling to Canada can be a fun and exciting experience. However, in order to visit Canada, you need to retain a Temporary Residence Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Starting March 15, 2016 Canada has introduced the eTA for visa exempt countries. This is only required for travels coming to Canada via air. US citizens are exempt from this requirement.
An eTA is a big shift in how Canadian immigration works and it is going to change the way people apply to visit Canada. The eTA is for visa-exempt individuals who fly to Canada. Before people could visit Canada without needing to get a visa, but now, these individuals are required to get an eTA.
