The Hearties Family Reunion committee received information on a couple of travel items: 

1)  There is a travel document called an Electronic Travel Authorization required for individuals traveling to Canada.  Please note, if you are from Canada, or from the United States traveling with a valid U.S. Passport, this requirement does NOT apply to you.  This is for our Hearties coming in from around the world, or Hearties traveling from the U.S. with documents other than a U.S. Passport, (such as a Permanent Resident Alien).   Not all countries require the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA), so we recommend that you go to this website to see if it is something you need.  It will give you cost information and it appears you can apply online.  

2)  Do you have a child traveling with you, but both legal parents are not traveling with them?  Please refer to this website that has helpful information regarding traveling internationally with children when both parents are not present.
