After sustained and meaningful dialogue between the governments of Canada and St. Kitts and Nevis, the visa requirement imposed on nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis in 2014 has been partially lifted, clearing the way for easier movement of people between our two countries.  

In essence, the policy applies to the following categories of nationals:  

  1. Those who have had a Canadian visa over the past ten (10) years, and 

  1. Those who have a current non-immigrant US Visa.  

The above categories of nationals are required to apply online for an electronic  travel authorization (ETA) (, for which a response is usually received the same day. This is the case with European nationals.  

First time applicants or persons who do not have a US or Canadian Visa are still required to apply for a visa to enter Canada.
