Important Air Rifle Restrictions

Passports, Visas, and eTAs

All visitors of Canada need a valid passport. A Visa is necessary for some countries.

Everyone who requires a Visa must have this before boarding the plane or crossing the border into Canada.

All visitors to Canada will also be required to have an approved Electronic Transportation Approval (eTA) before they can be issued a boarding pass at their point of departure.  This must be obtained at least 72 hours prior to departure.

If a Visa is required, teams are responsible to arrange Visas in a timely manner for all accredited team members.  Upon request, The LOC can provide letters in support of the team attending the 2024 Para Biathlon World Championships and the 2024 Para Nordic World Cup Finals.  For these letters, details for each team member that is attending needs to be provided (full name, date of birth, passport number, passport expiry date, position (athlete, guide, coach, technician, doctor, etc.).
