Before you fly
Visa and Passport
Many countries have specific requirements for passport validity, and often require passports to be valid significantly longer than the length of your trip – this can vary depending on your country of origin, as well as other factors.
Please check the passport and visa requirements for all countries you’ll be visiting on your journey, and make sure your passport has appropriate validity to cover your whole trip.
Additionally, for both Hajj and Umrah in 2018 the Saudi Government will issue electronic visas for all countries. You can learn more on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website(Opens in a new window).
Customers visiting Canada can now use primary inspection kiosks at Toronto Pearson International Airport to confirm their identity before entering the country. All customers – including Canadian citizens – can scan their travel document, have their photo taken and make an on-screen declaration to enter the country.
If you prefer, you can also complete your declaration in advance by downloading the CanBorder - eDeclaration mobile app, (Opens an external website in a new window) and scanning your quick response (QR) code at a kiosk upon arrival.
Primary inspection kiosks will improve border security and reduce waiting times at Canada's airports. To learn more, please visit the Canada Border Services Agency website(Opens an external website in a new window).
