Travel to and from Canada
When you travel to, via, or from Canada, you’ll probably need to arrange a visa or an eTA. Read all about how to organise it.
If you need to arrange a visa, our partner Sherpa can take care of your application at a fee. Or you can organise it yourself via the applicable authorities. To check in online via KLM.com, your travel documents (visa or otherwise) must be complete.
eTA instead of visa
The Visa Waiver Programme allows citizens of specific countries to travel visa-free to Canada. Instead of a visa, you will have to apply for an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization).
If you need an eTA, you can choose to let our partner Sherpa take care of everything for you at a fee. Or you can organise it yourself via the website of the Government of Canada.
