What are the costs of an eTA application made up of?
The total costs for obtaining an eTA are made up of a number of items, including consular fees, service costs, costs for error checking, digital processing/issuance and customer support. All these costs are included in the total amount of £19.95 per person. The price for business travellers and tourists is the same. It also does not matter if you actually want to stay in Canada, or if you only need the eTA for a transfer in Canada.
Direct payment in pounds
Although the Canadian immigration service charges prices in Canadian dollars, when using this eTA form you always pay in pounds. The prices mentioned on this page are therefore in pounds and not in Canadian dollars. Because you pay in pounds, you are not dependent on exchange rate fluctuations and do not pay any exchange rate surcharge.
Cost urgent eTA Canada
Are you in urgent need of an eTA Canada? You can indicate this in the application form. By checking the option "urgent delivery" in the form, the average delivery time will be reduced from 72 hours to 18 minutes. This is achieved by performing the error check more quickly and processing the application almost immediately. However, even an urgent delivery does not guarantee that the eTA Canada will be obtained on time, or within a certain time.
In exceptional cases, an urgent application can also be subjected to a random extended background check. It is also always possible that additional questions will be asked, for example if the immigration service suspects (rightly or wrongly) that you have not filled in the form truthfully. An additional fee of £17.50 per person is charged for urgent deliveries.

Reimbursement of application costs in case of rejection
In the exceptional case that an application for an eTA is rejected, this is usually due to your travel history. Travellers who have previously had problems entering Canada or applying for a visa or eTA are more likely to be rejected. The same applies to people who have lived in Canada and are still officially registered there, although they often do not know this themselves. If your application is rejected, you will be refunded the full cost of the eTA. However, this does not apply to persons for whom previous applications have already been rejected.
