  • Mexican citizens, among other nationalities, have the benefit of obtaining a pre-approved Visitor status for 6 months. The rest of the nationalities, all need to process a student visa (Study Permit), regardless of how long they are going to be in Canada. If your idea is to be in Canada for only one month, you only need to obtain the eTA. With a valid eTA, you can travel to Canada as often as you want for short stays (normally for up to six months at a time). An eTA doesn’t guarantee entry to Canada. When you arrive, a border services officer will ask to see your passport and other documents. You must convince the officer that you are eligible for entry into Canada.
