Canada imposes New Visa requirements for Mexican citizens effective February 29, 2024

Dear future neighbour,

This update is in response to a rise in asylum petitions filed by Mexican citizens that are denied, withdrawn or abandoned. The new changes will apply even if you have already booked your trip to Canada so this is very important.

According to IRCC, having pre-booked travel reservations or a previously valid electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) does not ensure approval for a new eTA or visa.

Mexican citizens can reapply for a new eTA if they fall into any of these categories:

  • frequently fly to Canada and have had a visitor visa to Canada in the last ten years
  • or currently possess a valid non-immigrant visa to the United States.

If they do not have any of the above, they require a visa.

Mexican citizens who have valid Canadian work or study permits are unaffected. Their eTA will not be cancelled and they will be able to continue traveling to Canada.

Mexican citizens residing in Canada without a Canadian study or work permit are allowed to stay for the duration of their permitted stay. However, when they leave Canada and intend to return, they must obtain a visa or a new electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), if eligible.

Due to the new entrance regulations, Mexican visitors may experience delays upon arrival at Canadian airports. It’s important for Mexican visitors to be aware of these regulations and plan accordingly for potential delays when traveling to Canada.

Need help obtaining a visitor visa to visit Canada, or professional help putting in a study visa application, work permit application, Expression of Interest, creating an express entry or provincial nomination profile, preparing your application after receiving an invitation to apply or even just reviewing an application you prepared yourself?
