It is the responsibility of the traveller to gather information about and obtain required travel documents, visas and travel authorizations (as applicable) needed for entry into the destination country.

Travelling in Europe
Canadians do not need a visa to travel to countries within the Schengen area for stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period.
Travelling to the USA? It is a requirement of the US Department of Homeland Security for all passengers eligible to travel under the Visa Waiver Program to apply for an Electronic System Travel Authorisation (ESTA).
Passengers travelling to Canada must apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). This includes those with a study/work permit. Exceptions include Canadian citizens or dual Canadian citizens, Canadian permanent residents, or U.S. citizen. (However, lawful permanent residents of the U.S. need an eTA if travelling by air.) We always recommend getting an eTA before booking your flight to Canada.
Visitors travelling to India need to apply for a visa in advance, with two options available: Regular visa and e-visa. The type of visa depends on the passenger‘s nationality. Please remember to print a paper copy of your e-visa. We advise our passengers to seek information from Indian authorities about travel documents and requirements before entering India.
