Default Iraq visa in passport

Does having an Iraqi visa in your passport cause problems entering Canada? I know that the USA now require you to visit the embassy in your home country for an interview. Even for an ETA. Is this the same for Canada or will it not cause any problems.

My daughter came here several times while living in Iraq, she didn't mention any issue. I would think it depends somewhat on the passport you have.

what does the eTA application ask?


Whatever you "think" might be applicable to the US visitor waiver program/immigration procedure, is not applicable to Canada.

There is the odd chance that you might be selected for secondary Immigration for further questioning that is not carried out at Primary Inspection.
As to what that questioning might consist of well I can't read the mind of the examining officer but provided you have the correct answers then you will be fine.
