Visa Information For Canada Visa Eligibility, FAQ For Bulgarian, Mexican, South Korean & Israeli Citizens


Any Bulgarian citizen visiting Canada briefly must secure a Canadian eTA visa. Alternative forms of travel necessitate an independent travel permit. The Canadian government launched an online visa exemption service for eligible countries in 2015. Bulgarian citizens are allowed to travel to Canada for tourism, business, or transit purposes without needing a visa. This only applies to inbound international flights to Canada. Bulgarian residents can visit Canada with a Canadian Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). The Canadian eTA allows Bulgarians to visit Canada multiple times within a five-year period, with each visit limited to a maximum of six months. The eTA is digitally connected to the passports of Bulgarian visitors and cannot be moved to a different travel document. This means that if a passport with an approved eTA expires before 5 years, your travel authorization will also expire. Bulgarians who confirm that they meet the requirements can start the Canadian eTA application process online. The application form is a simple questionnaire that takes less than 30 minutes to complete. 


  • Valid Passport: Your travel document must be valid for six months from your arrival on Canadian territory.
  • Email address: Please make sure you have access to the email address you provided, as all the information we have about your ETA will be communicated to you through this email. 
  • Payment Methods: You can use a credit or debit cards, but you can also use PayPal account to pay for the eTA fees.


As per Canadian visa regulations, Mexican nationals must obtain a Canadian eTA to fly to Canada. The Canadian government introduced the eTA system in 2015 for visitors from over 50 countries, including Mexico. People from these countries can visit Canada without a standard visa if they have a valid passport from one of these nations. Mexican residents must obtain an electronic travel authorization (eTA) before visiting Canada. People from nations such as Mexico, who do not need a visa, can apply for their Canadian travel visas online. Mexican citizens can stay in Canada for up to 6 months with the eTA, which is useful for transiting, holidaying, and conducting business activities such as attending meetings. The Canadian eTA is valid for a period of 5 years from the date of issue or until the traveler's Mexican passport expires (whichever comes first). This means that visitors to Mexico do not have to reapply every year, as is the case with traditional visas. Mexican citizens can enter and exit Canada as many times as they wish as long as they do so within the validity period of their eTA. Applicants do not need to visit the nearest Canadian embassy, submit documents, or attend an in-person interview. Everything is done online, and it takes most applicants about 15 minutes to complete the application. 

Documents required for the Canada Visa

  • A valid Mexico-issued passport
  • A current email address to receive notifications and confirmation of the Canadian eTA
  • A valid form of payment (credit card or debit card) to pay for the eTA fees.
  • A device with internet access, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop in order to fill out and submit their application.


Every year, Canada attracts thousands of travelers and tourists from around the globe who come to visit friends and family or appreciate the country's natural beauty. The Canadian government has implemented a convenient and rapid online application system for an Electronic Travel Authorization or Canada Visa, making it easier than ever to travel to Canada. In Canada, you can choose between two types of visas: single-entry or multiple entry. The Canada Visit Visa allows you to spend up to six months in Canada. Even though a tourist visa does not allow one to work in Canada, it does allow for traveling within the country for tourism and leisure purposes. People with single-entry visas from other countries can only enter Canada once. Throughout the validity period of the visa, the holder is allowed to enter and exit multiple times as desired. Online, on paper, or in person at the Visa Application Center (VAC), applicants who need a visitor visa to enter Canada can submit their applications.


  • A valid passport with an expiry date that is after six months or more.
  • Minimum 2 recent passport size photos 
  • Documents that prove you have enough ties to your home country.
  • Financial statements that prove you have enough funds to support your stay in Canada.
  • A letter of invitation from your relatives if you are planning to stay with them.
  • Medical clearance certificate if you need to undergo a medical exam before your trip.


In 2015, Canada introduced the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) system for tourists from 50+ countries, which includes South Korea. Only air travelers are eligible to apply for a Canada electronic travel authorization. The electronic travel authorization (eTA) from South Korea is intended for tourists, business travelers, Canadians traveling overseas, or individuals seeking medical treatment or counseling. South Korean citizens have the option to take part in Canada's Visa Waiver Program. This indicates that you do not require a visa to visit Canada. In 2015, the eTA was introduced by Canada's Immigration Service to assess the eligibility of foreign visitors to Canada and streamline the eTA application process. South Korean citizens have the option to apply for the Canadian eTA. As a replacement for the visa, Canada has introduced the Electronic Travel Authorization (Canadian eTA online). The eTA allows Canadian authorities to pre-screen foreign travelers and makes it easier for South Koreans to enter Canada. Travelers may stay up to 6 months during each trip and may enter Canada multiple times within a 5-year period. The Immigration Service will record the length of stay when the traveler arrives at the border and the expiry date will be written on the passport. The eTA application for South Korean citizens must be submitted at least 72 hours prior to travel to ensure the document is processed and the eTA is issued before you travel. 


  • A South Korean passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of travel
  • A valid credit or debit card to pay for the eTA fee.
  • A current email address to receive the eTA in their Inbox.


The need for a visa for Canada by an Israeli citizen is determined by the duration and purpose of their trip. Every Israeli citizen needs to obtain a visa for a short visit to Canada. For reasons like tourism, work, layovers, or medical visits, citizens of Israel must acquire a Canada eTA visa. The Canadian government introduced the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) system in 2015 for travelers from over 50 countries, among them Israel. Israeli travelers passing through Canadian airports en route to other destinations can choose to utilize the Canadian eTA. From August 2015, individuals traveling to Canada for transit, business, or tourism purposes must possess an eTA. Israeli travelers should take note that the Canadian eTA is linked electronically to the passport that was used for the application. The Canadian eTA is valid for 5 years or until the Israeli citizen's passport expires. This is a multiple entry visa waiver and can be used for any number of trips within a 5-year period. The maximum duration of each trip is 6 months. Travelers wishing to travel to Canada for other reasons such as study or work should contact the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate for more information. This visa waiver system allows citizens of Israel and some other countries to easily obtain travel authorization without having to visit a Canadian embassy or consulate. The candidate just needs to access the online eTA application form from a mobile device. The application process takes about 15 minutes from start to finish.

  • A valid credit or debit card or PayPal account to pay for the Canada eTA.
