加拿大移民局宣布，由2018年6月5日 (GST下午1:30) 起，阿拉伯聯合酋長國公民入境加拿大，不再需要申請旅遊簽證。
阿聯酋將不再需要簽證才能進入加拿大，而是只需在出發前，在網上辦理電子旅遊許可 (eTA) 登機。在線申請 eTA 快速輕鬆，或將吸引阿聯酋公民到加拿大旅行。
“The United Arab Emirates is a key strategic partner and lifting the visa requirement will help reaffirm the strong relationship between our two countries. It will also promote increased tourism, cultural, academic and study exchanges, as well as foster new business, trade, and investment opportunities.”
– Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
Citizens of the United Arab Emirates: Our entry rules are changing. Starting June 5, 2018 (at 1:30 PM GST), you will no longer need a visa to enter Canada.
However, if you are flying to Canada, you will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to board your flight. It’s quick and easy to apply online for an eTA. If you already have a valid Canadian visa, you may continue to use it to fly to Canada until it expires.
This decision is based on a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation of the UAE against Canada’s visa policy criteria. The evaluation found that the UAE meets Canada’s criteria for a visa exemption.
