Visa Program to Welcome Japanese, Filipino, Seychelles, Greek, and Thai Citizens

Ottawa, Canada, 27th April 2024, Canada opens its doors wider to global travelers with the expansion of its Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) program. The Canadian government has announced that citizens of Japan, the Philippines, Seychelles, Greece, and Thailand are now eligible to apply for the ETA, simplifying the process for entry into the country.

This strategic move underscores Canada’s commitment to fostering international relations and promoting tourism while ensuring security and efficiency at its borders. With the addition of these five nations, the ETA program now extends its reach to even more diverse corners of the globe, facilitating seamless travel experiences for visitors to Canada.






The ETA program, implemented in 2015, allows eligible travelers to obtain authorization to enter Canada electronically. It streamlines the entry process by eliminating the need for traditional paper applications and in-person interviews, making travel to Canada more accessible and convenient.

Japanese citizens, known for their rich cultural heritage and technological prowess, can now explore the vast landscapes and vibrant cities of Canada with greater ease. Similarly, Filipino travelers can embark on adventures to discover Canada’s natural wonders and urban delights, forging stronger ties between the two nations.

For citizens of Seychelles, an archipelago renowned for its stunning beaches and biodiversity, the ETA opens up opportunities to experience Canada’s diverse landscapes and multicultural communities firsthand. Greek travelers, with their deep-rooted history and legendary hospitality, can now add Canada to their list of must-visit destinations.

Lastly, Thai citizens, known for their warm smiles and culinary expertise, can now indulge in Canadian experiences, from sampling poutine in Montreal to exploring the picturesque landscapes of Banff National Park.

To apply for the ETA, eligible travelers simply need to complete an online application, which can be done quickly and conveniently from the comfort of their homes. Once approved, the ETA is electronically linked to the traveler’s passport and remains valid for up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first.

With the expansion of the ETA program, Canada reaffirms its position as a welcoming and inclusive destination for travelers from around the world. Whether it’s exploring the vibrant streets of Toronto, marveling at the natural beauty of Vancouver Island, or experiencing the rich cultural tapestry of Montreal, Canada invites visitors to embark on unforgettable journeys and create lasting memories.
