I am a permanent resident of Canada. Can I apply for an eTA?
No. By law, Canadian permanent residents, cannot apply for an eTA.
Canadian permanent residents are required to present a valid Canadian permanent resident card or a permanent resident travel document when travelling to Canada. Canadian permanent residents should also carry a valid passport with them when travelling internationally, including when returning to Canada.
If you need to replace or renew your permanent resident card, make sure to plan ahead and check the processing times.
