COMMUNICATION OF PERSONAL DATA TO THE USA - SECURE FLIGHT PROGRAM

In accordance with the Secure Flight* program administered by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), passengers flying to, from, or through the United States, or flying over U.S. airspace to other countries (e.g., Canada, Cuba, and Mexico), are required to provide the following personal information at the time of booking or ticket issuance, or no later than 72 hours prior to departure:

  • first name and surname (as stated in their passport)
  • date of birth
  • sex

Failure to provide these details will mean the passenger will not be able to depart.

Contact the Customer Centre or ask your travel agency to include them in your booking.

Passengers in possession of a Redress Number identification number should also communicate this information to the Call Center.

E.S.T.A.

CANADA

ETA

The Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is the entry requirement for foreign nationals, other than US citizens, traveling to or transiting through Canada without a visa.

The eTA is electronically linked to your passport and is valid for five years or until your passport expires, whichever is sooner.

Applying for an eTA is a very simple online process and costs C$7. Most applicants receive approval within minutes of submitting the online form.

Have the following to hand before proceeding:

  • passport
  • email address
  • credit card

You can apply for one person at a time. For example, a family of three will need to complete and submit the form three times.

Apply for eTA authorization online

You can significantly reduce your wait time at the airport of arrival in Canada by completing the Advance Declaration - the immigration and customs declaration - at least 72 hours before your departure using the ArriveCAN app
