Have have checked all over and can't find answer to this simple question

How many times is one person allowed to buy the pass?
If I travel once a year from Canada to visit can I buy a pass each year?
Is there a time required between visits?
Is there a limit as to how many passes I am allowed in my lifetime?

Hi Alex,

There is no limit to the amount of passes you can buy. The only limitation is that passes are not allowed to overlap in validity period.

Hope this helps,
