    2. The NEW rule was implemented last yr. Ung mga citizens from countries na di need ng Canada Visitor Visa to travel to Canada eh need mag-apply ng eTA. Iba po ang visa sa eTA. Pero pag Phil Passport holder ka, u don’t need eTA to travel to Canada. What u need is the Canada visitor visa.

    3. 2:27 they are not travelling to canada they are just passing by. So its Eta not visitors visa coz again they are just passing by..

    4. Ayan! Online booking pa more!!!

      Delete
    5. 10:37 What's wrong with online booking? I do all my transactions onlin3 esp. flights and visa application. You just need to be knowledgeable and be prepared pre-departure so you won't have trouble on your departure date. Print everything what you need to print beforehand and check all policies for each country you're passing by.

    6. This is only applicable to visa exempt countries. Kailangan nila kumuha ng eTA. Online, kaya nga electronic travel authorization. Pag Philippines passport holder, hindi kasali! US Visa lang requirement not Canadian visa! Kung US ang ultimate destination. Or vice versa.

    7. MOSt people do their bookings online. Ibang booking kasi inaatupag mo. Mas hassle pa nga in person booking eh gnun din naman un

  2. So Australians actually need that for Canada? Hmm. Really surprised because they are passport holders of a first world country.

    2. A Canadian passport guarantees you visa free entry to almost all the countries
      In the planet - except Australia. Australia required Canadians to get a visa. Hahahah Baka resbak ng Canada
      Ito - and actually this has been required since forever

      Delete
    3. It is not that CANADA wants to get back at other countries. It is all about SAFETY of the countries implementing it.

      Delete
    4. Canadians don't need a visa to go to Australia. What they need is an eTA. Same goes for Australians traveling to Canada.

      Delete
    5. No, you are mistaken. ETA lang kelangan hindi visa which you can pay online for $20.

      Delete
    6. Actually, 6:09, its only $7 CAD.

      Delete
    7. GUYS, ALL COUNTRIES THAT DO NOT NEED A CANADA VISA ARE REQUIRED TO SECURE AN ETA BEFORE THEY TRAVEL TO CANADA. THEY DON'T NEED A VISA, JUST ETA.

  4. Josko ang tagal nang nasa site ng CIC yan requirement na yan. Magresearch din kasi bago bumiyahe!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thing is, Canada is not their destination. Its a mere layover. Di sila lalabas ng airport teh. So di nya siguro naisip na icheck yung CIC re permissions since di naman sila talaga pupunta ng Canada. Gets mo baaaa

      Delete
    2. Kahit na. Dapat pati lay over mo titignan mo if kailangan ng visa.

      Delete
    3. Talino naman ni anon 12:41 haha. Mostly naman kasi pag layover lang, you wont need anything lalo kung di ka naman lalabas sa airport. G na G si teh. Kala mo sya nagbayad nung ticket nila drew for rebooking haha

      Delete
    4. TRUE, agents can also be blamed here. Some honest agents will remind you about layover if you have proper documents. SOme dont, as long as makapagbenta. Totoo as traveller u have to check our layovers.

      Delete
    5. Kung frequent traveller ka like drew, dapat common sense na to check the latest entry requirements sa destination or transit country na pupuntahan niyo. And i agree, the travel agent or airline is partly to be blamed. Kapag nagpapa book kami online kasama sa tix namin ang reminder to check travel req’ts sa mga layovers. Maybe not all had that reminder, but it is the traveller’s responsibility to check imo.

    6. 11:37 PM. Sabihin na nating ang galing mo magtravel, but not everyone is. Wag mo na pakialaman if some people would like to help those who are not in the know. It's a learning process for everyone, be happy skilled ka na diyan in addition to having all the time and means to research.

  5. Only US passport holders are exempted from this, nothing to do with being a first world country. This rule has been implemented for a while and it is always on their website even before they implemented it. They should have known better.

    1. My personal experience. US passport holder, went to Australia last year, still required to get ETA. I initially thought di ko din kelangan.

      Delete
    2. 12:49 May ETA na rin na kailangan for US passport holders na tatawid ng border, pero they can secure it sa border na mismo, or they can do it online and it will only take 5 minutes to be approved. Ang problema nga lang e kung down ang system nila, so do it beforehand na tjust to be sure.

      Delete
    3. US PASSPORT HOLDERS STILL NEED AN ETA. NO COUNTRY IS EXEMPTED ACTUALLY.

      Delete
  6. Well if you holds a Philippine passport always expect the unexpected...sad but true.

    1. I think ang problem niya is yung wife and mom in law niya who are holding australian passports. They were surprised na even aus sila, need padin. He’s a traveller so in his na na he’s holding a Ph passport, gets niya yon

      Delete
    2. Immigration rules changes so fast, lalo na after nitong mga SECUTIRY breaches sa mga airports at terrorism issues. KAYA as a traveller always check ONLINE or govt agencies about the requirement. TAMA advise ni DREW, always know the rules and requirements.

      Delete
    3. 3:21 - TRUE. JUST TO SHARE - KAPAG NAKAKUHA KA NG U.S. TOURIST VISA TAPOS PUMUNTA KANG U.S. (FIRST ENTRY) TAPOS NAG-ASAWA KA DURING YOUR TRIP, E IDEDEPORT KA OR MAKUKULONG KA. RECENTLY LANG DIN IYAN NILABAS NG US IMMIGRATION.

  7. They are Australian citizens. Canada and Australia are both "commonwealth". I mean they are "sister-countries".

  8. Nasa website yan ng PAL matagal na. Not sure kung paano sila nag book. Kung thru agency or ticket ofc, dapat ni remind sila nyan.

    1. Kung agency dapat may reminder na print out yan.

  9. Pinag aralan ko just now what’s on PAL’s website. Medyo nakakalito. For Ph passport holders, exempted if may b1/b2 visa

    1. Yes. Visa lang need mo. eTA are for those citizens of another country na visa free pag nagtravel sa Canada like Aussies, Japanese, Koreans and members of Commonwealth.

  10. Ang weird naman that you need a visa even for a layover. Di ka naman lumabas ng airport.

    1. eta is not a visa

      Delete
    2. Pag PH passport holder, kelangan ng transit visa if ang layover mo is sa US. Yes, kahit nasa loob ka lang ng airport, kelangan mo pa rin mag apply

      Delete
    3. kahit po ba greencard holder need nyan?

      Delete
  11. That's why you have to check your lay overs kahit saglit lang kayo dun. If anong documents ang kailangan and if you need a visa or anong patakaran sa bansang un. Iba iba kasi talaga

    ReplyDelete
  12. If you don't have Canadian visa need eta talaga,, even just transit

  13. This is new. May kilala ako na hindi rin alam 'to. Sayang talaga pamasahe.

  14. I'm guessing separate booking yung manila to vancouver nila at vancouver to new york. hindi iisang itinerary kaya hinanapan ng eta. it takes 5 minutes to get an eta online plus minimal payment fee. you always have to make sure you have everything u need before u travel and keep photocopies of your travel documents separate from your handbag in case mawalan ka ng passport etc.

  15. I'm Primo's number 1 fan! Just saying.

  16. kasalanan yan nung booking agent nila. they should know ung requirements sa mga stop over countries. 🤣🤣🤣

    1. No. Kasama sa print out yan ng ticketing and hindi un controlled ng agent/travel agency. I think kung nagbasa lang sana sila it will save them from hassle

  17. Lesson is do the research before you travel to other countries from airline, immigration at custom's nang bansa. madami nang available information sa net.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This almost happened to me! Buti nalang I read the whole flight confirmation a week before our flight. I’m a PH passport holder who went to Canada last month. I am a US permanent resident. I applied for the ETA online and true enough, 10 minutes lang siya and it costs 3 USD. It was printed in bold letters (hard to miss) sa flight confirmation na citizens of visa exempt countries who go to or transit through Canada need ETA except US Citizens. Just sharing.

  19. Isa lang masasabi Ko dyan ha. Wala akong maintindihan hahaha.

  20. Must be for Australia citizens? Flew to NYC via PAL (last year) and had a layover in Vancover as well. Didn't require an eTA (I have a Philippine Passport). PAL just handed us a laminated card that says IN TRANSIT. Their security is very strict though.

    1. ETA IS NOT VISA. THAT'S THE REASON THEY DID NOT ASK YOU TO PRESENT ONE.

      Delete
    2. Did I MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT A VISA??? If I read Drew's post correctly, they had a 2 hour layover in Vancouver. And since his wife and mother in law are australian citizens, maybe they are required to get an eTA #Chill #KnowItAll

  21. Naging mahigpit na ang Canadian Port Of Entries since Trump won. I am a Canadian and my hubby is American who visits us all the time. When my MIL visited us this year, she was asked how long she's staying? When she answered 3 weeks, sabi ang taga daw. Dati 6 months pd magstay tourist dito. Changes happen on immigration very quickly. Just be ready all the time.

  22. Frequent traveller or not dapat nagbabasa talaga tayo at mag research kung anong travel documents ang kailangan, kung may lay over at visa/eta na kailangan sa bansang un. Huwag din umasa lang sa travel agency to do everything for you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think kasalanan din ng PAL. Dapat na inform sila Drew before boarding dito sa Manila na Australian passport holders need ETA when transiting through Canada. Siguro di aware ang PAL ground crew regarding this rule.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dapat nagbasa sya when he was booking. Hello may pop up sa website informing that you'll need eta for certain passport holders! Entitled masyado porke artista.
