Visas and immigration

All visitors to Canada require a visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). eTAs cost $7 CAD each and only takes a few minutes to complete. Exceptions are US citizens and travellers with a valid visa. We highly recommend applying for your eTA or visa before registering for the conference.

Steps for applying for an eTA or visa:

1) Check to see if you need a visa or eTA. Visit this Government of Canada website to answer a series of questions or check by visiting this page for a list of entry requirements by country.

2) Apply for an eTA here or for a Visitor (or Temporary Resident) visa here.  It is also highly recommended that you visit your local Visa Application Centre, which you can find by visiting VFS Global, which has all of the information and services for your visa application. 

3) If you require a visa, then you will likely need an invite letter. Please email us at info@tci2018.org and provide us with the following information for your invite letter: Name and address if the visa office location, your full name, title and organization, full address, phone, email, and expected length of stay in Canada. 

Note: If you require a visa, please give yourself 12 weeks to allow for processing time.  For eTAs, which can be obtained in a few minutes, allow up to several days for processing. 

4) Once you've received your visa or eTA, register for TCI 2018!
