VISA:

Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

Most travelers need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to, or transit through, a Canadian airport.

캐나다 공항을 통하여 입국하는 대부분의 외국인들은 비자를 제시하거나 비자면제국가인 경우 eTA 신청하여 입국허가를 미리 받아야 합니다. 대한민국은 비자면제국가이므로 대한민국 국적인 경우 반드시 출국전에 미리 eTA를 신청해야 합니다.
