What You Need to Know
British Citizens travelling to Canada do not need a visa, but they now require an Electronic Travel Authorisation, or eTA. Visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air must comply with this entry requirement. The eTA links electronically to a traveller's passport, so flyers must use the passport that they applied with. Passengers must also have a valid passport to fly internationally. Check-in typically opens four hours before scheduled international departures at Gatwick, and travellers should leave at least two hours before their flight to check in and go through security.
