US & Canada Electronic Travel Authorisation
International travellers who are seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) are now subject to enhanced security requirements and will be required to pay an administrative fee.
All eligible travellers who wish to travel to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program must apply for authorisation and then pay the fee using the following process:-
Australians travelling to Canada will require pre-arrival clearance from early next year.
At this stage it looks to be implemented from April 2016.
The Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) will be compulsory for travellers who do not require a visa to enter Canada and will cost CAD$7 per person.
The eTA will be valid for up to five years. Travellers will apply online, providing basic personal information similar to what is currently collected when arriving in Canada. The eTA is convenient and paperless, which means most visa-exempt nationals who wish to travel to Canada will have their eTA granted within minutes of applying. Having obtained an eTA, travellers to Canada can expect faster service upon arrival at the border.
