Citizens of Romania and Bulgaria no longer need visa for Canada
However, similar to other visa-exempt travellers, they will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through a Canadian airport.
An eTA allows officials to screen travellers for potential inadmissibility before they board their flight to Canada.
The decision to lift the visa requirements is a culmination of high-level engagement with Romania and Bulgaria on visa issues that began in 2014.
It demonstrates the importance the Government of Canada places on its relationship with both countries, and the EU more broadly. ■
