Hi Team,

My friend is from india, he got an ETA, plus stamp from canada ( immigration check is not required to fly canada, valid for 6 months 01-01-2017).

My question is : Can he travel with ETA ( ETA consists of all just details , there is no photo). Plus small stamp staying immigration check is not required to fly canada, valid for 6 months 01-01-2017)

Please guide me, he is worried .

Thanks in advance
Warmest Regards
Siddarth

he was applied from consultancy, that consultancy took money from him and gave this ETA.

They said this is valid visa, if you want, you can search online.

Yes, of course, it is genuine when I checked in CIC website.

I do not know how to trust because he is haivng Indian citizenship, he does not have the authorization to travel to Canada with the help of ETA

If your friend holds an Indian passport (but no US Green Card) then he definitely needs a visa (Temporary Resident Visa) to visit Canada. He cannot travel to Canada with this eTA

btw how much did he pay the consultant for this eTA?

he paid 2000 CAD for ETA and he got a stamp in passport saying that ( immigration check is not required to fly canada , valid upto 6 months 01-01-2017)


What is this process and how the consultancy guys did that.
what about my friend situation now.

He need to apply from scratch for visit visa or temporary resident visa.

Simple answer. Your friend was scammed. Nothing costs $2K.

This is a scam.

btw an eTA costs just`CAD 7. Someone can apply for this on his/her own without a consultant.

Your friend must apply for a TRV from scratch

Passport will be stamped by the visa office in India.

Hopefully he didn't pay money in exchange for this job. If he did, it's almost certainly a scam.

Thanks for your immediate reply sir . No he dint pay any amount and it is a genuine offer for him . But his concern was how is it possible for them apply in Canada when he is in India . And how will they get his passport to stamp the visa . His workpermit is been submitted through a representative there in Canada .

Usually how long it take to process his application because on the net it says canada processing time is 14 weeks while for India it says 9 weeks . Now will it be processed according to canada time or Indian processing time .

It is an online application that a person can apply for from anywhere in the world. The fact that the lawyer in Canada applied on his behalf doesn't mean that the app is being processed in Canada. As scylla has already told you, his passport would be stamped by the New Delhi VO.
