The Society of Architectural Historians provides the following information for those who will be traveling to Canada to participate in the SAH 76th Annual International Conference.
To facilitate border procedures during entry into Canada, each conference participant should have a copy of the letter from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that officially recognizes the conference event.
You will need to present this letter to CBSA officials. Please download the letter and read it carefully. If you have questions, please email Christopher Kirbabas at email@example.com
To limit the further spread of coronavirus in Canada, new travel restrictions are in place across all border crossings. Please review the following link carefully to determine if you are eligible to enter Canada: travel.gc.ca/travel-covid
If you will be traveling from visa-requiring countries, we encourage you to apply for a visitor visa as soon as possible as there may be processing delays. If you require a letter or documentation from SAH, please email Christopher Kirbabas at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.

Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)
Visa-exempt foreign nationals, excluding U.S. citizens, now require an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. For more information please visit: canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/eta/apply.html
Are you flying into Canada? Would you like to potentially cut your processing time in half? The CanBorder – eDeclaration app for your smart phone is quick, simple and secure, operates in airplane mode (once downloaded) and allows you to create a declaration for up to five travellers with the same place of residence.
