Check eTA Application Status
Check your Canada eTA application status using the form below to find out if your eTA is still valid, expired or has been denied for travel to Canada. Once granted, a Canadian eTA is valid for five years or until the date of your passport expiry, whichever is sooner. If you have received a new passport since your last eTA, you will need to apply for a new eTA to travel to Canada. Applications can be made online and are usually approved within minutes.
Travelers are advised to apply at least one week prior to their departure to Canada. If you have just applied for an eTA and your application status is showing as "Not Found", please wait a few hours for the application to process before checking again. Please ensure the information you provide is accurate. If after four weeks you still have not received a decision on your eTA application, contact our support team for assistance.
