Canada has eased some of the rules for Mexicans citizens wishing to travel to Canada.
Beginning in 2016 Mexicans who have had a US or Canadian Visa previously will be able to apply for an eTA online and avoid the Visa application process.
In a press release the government of Mexico, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), welcomed the announcement made today by the Canadian government. Canada began requiring Visas for Mexican travelers in July 2009.
“The implementation of this measure is an essential step towards the elimination of the Canadian visa for Mexican nationals. It is a result of diplomatic dialogue, deepening relationships between the two countries over the past two years and the joint efforts of the authorities to advance in building mutual trust,” said the Foreign Ministry release.
