Applications will be reviewed and verified by our coordinating charity partner, MOSAIC. These ticket reservations will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The initial date for your travel will be no sooner than 30 days from the date you submit your application.
Please review the following steps:
Before starting the application, please ensure that you are eligible to obtain a ticket:
- Your final destination must be Canada
- The initial date for your travel should be within the next 60 days of submitting your application.
- The application will open every two weeks, please ensure that you include all immediate family members on one application form. Do not submit multiple applications for your immediate family members. Otherwise you will be taking away others opportunities to get a ticket, and your request may be canceled
- At least one family member must possess a Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) (other family members with legal permission to travel to Canada are also eligible)
- Every passenger must possess valid travel documents to enter Canada, including:
- Valid visa or electronic travel authorization (ETA)
- Single journey travel document if passport/visa are not available
- COVID-19 Vaccination Status *Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) visa holders are exempt from Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination entry requirements, but must meet all other public health requirements for travel. With limited exceptions, all travelers to Canada, including anyone arriving under the CUAET, must also use ArriveCAN.
- Ensure that each document is labeled separately, with the passenger’s name on it.
- Traveling with Children: Children under the age of 18 are considered minors in Canada. Minors who try to enter Canada without the proper documents, or who are with adults other than their parents or legal guardian(s), will be checked more closely. Make sure you have the proper documents with you.
- If a minor child is traveling with one parent only it is required to provide a letter of authorization, in English if possible, which is signed by the parent who is not traveling with them and includes the address and telephone number of the parent who is not traveling, and a photocopy of that parent’s signed passport or national identity card. The letter does not need to be certified. A photocopy of the parents or legal guardian’s signed passports or national identity cards should be attached to the letter
- If a minor child is traveling with a person other than their parents or legal guardian, it is required to provide a letter of authorization, in English if possible, which is signed by both parents or legal guardian(s) and includes the address and telephone number of both parents or legal guardian(s), and a photocopy of the parents or legal guardian(s) signed passport or national identity card. The letter does not need to be certified. A photocopy of the parents or legal guardian’s signed passports or national identity cards should be attached to the letter.
- More details about Canada’s guidelines on minor children traveling to Canada can be found here
- This resource from the Government of Canada website provides more information on how to prepare for your trip.
- If traveling in a group, you must only apply with/for immediate family members. Extended family members must apply separately.
- You must not have any current applications for sponsored travel to Canada from any other individuals or organizations.
- After submitting the application you will receive a confirmation email. This is not confirmation that you have a ticket, only that your application has been received.
- This round of application will open 300 airplane tickets. If you are applying to travel as a family, each person counts as a separate ticket. This means that a family of four will count as four of the 300 tickets.
- Your application will then be reviewed for eligibility by MOSAIC. Please note that completing the application does not confirm that you will receive tickets.
- If your application is approved, MOSAIC will reach out to you with further instructions.
We know you may still have questions about the program. You’ll find answers to many of your questions on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page here.
We will continue to fly Ukrainians to Canadian communities in the coming weeks.
