Singaporeans are eligible to apply for a Canada eTA. To successfully obtain your travel permit, you must follow the visa requirements for Singapore nationals. All applicants from Singapore must check they meet these initial requirements:
- Have a biometric passport
- Supply a frequently used email address
- Possess a debit or credit card
The Canadian eTA is an electronic travel permit that is automatically linked to the holders’ passport. It is a unique permit that cannot be transferred to a second document. This is especially important for Singaporeans with dual nationality. If for any reason, they have had to replace their passport between the date they applied for the eTA and their arrival in Canada, they will have to apply for a new Canadian eTA.
Travelers from Singapore must also ensure they will use a debit or credit card to pay the eTA fee, which has previously been activated for online transactions. The Canadian eTA has a very competitive price and is available at a government fee of US $ 6.00 plus a service fee of US $ 13.00 with a total cost of US $ 19.00.
Lastly, they must note that the Canadian government issues all communications regarding their eTA application by email. Therefore we recommend you to apply with an email account you frequently use.
Citizens from Singapore who plan to relocate to Canada for longer periods for full-time employment or to pursue higher education must note that the Canadian eTA does not cover these activities. We recommend scheduling an appointment at the Canadian embassy in Singapore City to inquire which travel document you may need.
