What are the exceptions?
ETA is not required for Canadian citizens, dual Canadian citizens, Canadian permanent residents or U.S. citizens (it is worth noticing that permanent residents of U.S. need to apply for eTA if they decide to travel by air).
How long can I use my eTA?
ETA is linked to your passport therefore it stays valid as long as your passport reaches its expiration date or for a period of 5 years (whichever circumstance occurs first). However, eTA enables you to stay in Canada only for a period of time no longer than 6 months. If you want to stay longer, you will have to apply for a special permission to extend your stay.
