× Passenger Update: Customers are advised when booking car hire and car parking at Shannon Airport to use licenced onsite operators. A number of offsite car hire and parking companies are purporting to operate at Shannon Airport but they operate offsite and have no agreement to collect or drop off passengers at the airport.  Booking with these companies may result in delays at the airport during pick up and drop off.

Canada Travel Requirements

Canada has introduced an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals flying to or transiting through Canada.

As of March 15, 2016, travellers who do not require a visa to fly to Canada need to apply for an eTA

This includes passengers travelling on an Irish passport. Applying for an eTA is simple, inexpensive ($7 Canadian) online process that takes minutes to complete.

To apply, travellers must have a valid passport, a credit card, and an e-mail address. An eTA is electronically linked to a passenger's passport and once approved, it is valid for 5 years or until passport expiry.

As of September 30, 2016, passengers who arrive at the airport without an eTA should expect to experience delays in their travels. For this reason, travellers should apply for their eTA before booking your flight to Canada.

For more information or to apply for an eTA, visit Canada.ca/eTA.
