Many thanks. Also I tink I also need to fill out a health declaration form because of Covid. I have never tested positive for covid but you still need to do this declaration??

yes thanks for that. The Agent did not say that but he probably thought I had already looked that up so thought he did not need to tell me

oh well. At least I have submitted my ETA now.

Getting excited.

I just found my email confirmation, this is what it said.....

Status : eTA approved
Name : (my name)
Passport number : (my number)
eTA number : J556565656
Expiration : 2025/06/11

Your application for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) has been approved. You are now authorized to travel to Canada by air.

Sorry, I can't remember how long it took exactly - it probably said how long it might take when you applied.
