This is wierd but this is how it works and I have experienced this more than once even though I had a H1.
1. You Outbound journey to Asia/Other SE countries originating from US -- You Do not need a Transit VISA
(Lets say you are in transit visa vancouver / Toronto)
2. However when you return to the US Via canada -- YOU MUST HAVE A TRANSIT VISA .... how stuid ( that is the system).
When i tried to board a Cathy pacfic flight from Bangkok bound from New York via Hong Kong ( I was asked for this), the airline then told me that they would now cancel my ticked and rebook me via LA as they have to pay a 4K fine if they let me on board.
So I would suggest get a Transit Visa.
