If your application is rejected, you should reapply. However, if you are approved, do not worry about it.
Q&A Categories Archives: Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
As of September 29, 2016, most travellers to Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before travelling to Canada.
The eTA will not be mandatory until September 29, 2016, so your parents can travel to the UK without an eTA provided the trip is before then.
Your parents may have issues when they enter Canada if there if the CBSA officer discovers they are permanent residents but do not have PR Cards. However, given that they are are older and British, they may be given the benefit of the doubt. (They may also be asked to apply for PR Cards while in Canada…)
If they are permanent residents you cannot sponsor them. They would have to renounce their status first before you sponsored them. The alternative would be for them to move here and stay here until they meet the residence requirements so you wouldn’t have to sponsor them.
eTAs will not be mandatory until September 29, 2016 at the earliest, so the easiest solution to your problem is to not bother with the eTAs.
If you would prefer to get the eTA regardless, indicate that you are married.
First, as of last week, eTAs will not be mandatory until September 29, 2016.
Second, you only need an eTA if you are travelling from and to Canada. If you are already in Canada with your study permit and will not be travelling until your permit is finished, then you do not need an eTA.
You do not need an eTA as you are a Canadian citizen. You also do not need an eTA because the eTA will not be mandatory until September 29, 2016. You should get a Canadian passport or travel to Canada on your British passport if you do not have enough time.
eTAs will not be mandatory until September 29, 2016. However, you can still apply for one ahead of time at CIC’s website. I don’t see how this affects your options for cheap flights.
It only matters the name on the eTA is different than the name on your passport. Please note that you do not need an eTA to travel to Canada until September 29, 2016.
eTAs will not be mandatory until September 2016. However, as a Canadian citizen, you do not need permission to travel to Canada. You should get yourself a Canadian Passport.
