ETA or Electronic Travel Authorization allows foreign nationals from visa-exempt countries to travel to Canada by air. The main reasons behind introducing the ETA system was to ease the travel experience of visa-exempt foreign nationals, as they can simply do it by filling up an online form before departure.
ETA is mandatory for visitors from most of the countries which do not require a Canadian TRV.
