You should consider checking the status of your eTA Travel Authorization if:

  • You have lost or forgotten your eTA number
  • You are not sure if you have previously applied for an eTA
  • You got new passport but can’t remember if you used this passport for the eTA Authorization
  • You do not know if your eTA travel authorization is still valid (eTA Travel Authorization usually expires after a 5 year period or passport expire date)

This process is executed the same day and you will receive an answer within 24 hours. Please notice if you don’t know your eTA application number the waiting time for processing the eTA status could be up to 5-7 working days.
The analysis and treatment fee per. application is CAD 19.00 The following information is required to retrieve your application.


Always apply for the eTA as soon as possible. Normally the authorization is approved within very short time, but in case that your authorization was denied you can expect additionally waiting time for your travel authorization.

  • eTA Canada – Valid for up to five years or until the passport expires, whichever comes first.  If you get a new passport, you need to get a new eTA.

  • eTA Travel – With a valid eTA, you can travel to Canada as often as you want for short stays (normally for up to six months at a time).


Always double check the passport number you typed into the form. It’s not possible to correct incorrect passport numbers on already approved eTA authorizations.

Please double check your passport issuance and expire date, as these information are very important to be 100% correct

Provide 100% correctly the names as in your passport. You can find the correct names by looking at the bottom of you passport in the machine readable area.

Carefully write you home address as it’s not possible to correct when application is approved.

Be sure to write your correct email address, as the Canadian Authorize send you update to this email.
