    Default Traveling India Via Canada From USA

    Hi,

    I'm travelling to India via Canada this Dec 24th. My itinerary looks like this.

    Minneapolis, USA -> Ontario, CANADA -> Frankfurt, Germany -> Chennai, India.

    Return Ticket

    Chennai, India -> Frankfurt, Germany -> Ontario, Canada -> Minneapolis, USA.

    My question, do i need a transit visa to travel via Canada even If I'm not going outside of the airport?.

    Please advise, If I need to take a transit visa for Canada. Then, I have to re-book my flights.

    I appreciate a quick response to my mesage.

    Thanks

    Yes, you would need a visa depending on your status in US.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.http://www.immihelp.com/visas/h1b/h1-visa-faq.html

    Thanks for your quick response. I have a valid H1-B Visa with F1 Stamping in my passport. During this trip to India, I'm going to get my H1-B Stamping.

    Until Frankfurt, I'm flying with Air-Canada i.e. Minneapolis, USA-> Ontario, Canada -> Frankfurt, Germany. I read the following link http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelin....html#-usviaca for the travel document requirements and I didn't see Transit Visa requirements in this page.

    I'm confused. Please help me.
