Help Centre what do you need help with?

I am a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. (Green Card holder) and my home country will not issue a passport to me. Can I apply for an eTA using a document other than a passport?

Yes. If you are a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. (Green Card holder) and cannot get a passport from your home country because it does not issue passports to permanent residents of other countries, you can apply with:

Enter the document number in the passport number field on the eTA application form. Your eTA will be electronically linked to your travel document.

Note: Whenever you travel to Canada, regardless of the method of travel, carry your valid Green Card to show your status as a lawful U.S. permanent resident.
