Bought a ticket to go to India (Indian citizen on H1) via Air Canada (2 hr layover) applied for a transit visa with 5 weeks to departure date, still have not heard back from them. 2 weeks left for the flight ... FML

      You need a visa to transit through a third country. It also depends on the visa rules between your country and the country you are transiting through. For example, Americans don’t need a visa to transit through Canada, Indians do.

      Most bully nations don’t need transit visa to transit thought another bully nation.

      Wait, there are no visa restrictions to transit through Europe. Why are there restrictions for Canada? Not cool, 🇨🇦. I thought you folks were chill.

      If you hate the US and Canada so much for bullying, why don’t you just go home? No one is “bullying” you into staying here.

      Asking for a Visa is bullying? There is a reason first world countries require them from people from second world countries

    Don't fly Air Canada if you're Indian. Canada is one of the few countries that still requires a transit Visa for Indians. Fly though Europe, ME or East Asia

      You need transit visa to fly through few European countries as well if your us visa is expired. For example London.

      West Asia is the best for Indians. Fly Etihad, Emirates, Qatar. They are top airlines, excellent food, no transit visa hassle.

      Actually, don't fly Air Canada at all unless you can't avoid it. It's a shitty airline.

    Getting a Canadian Visa is a nightmare. Their website was probably built by some drug addict. They take more than a month to send you back the passport.

    • Red Hat Gbjkgx
      2 weeks ago, some people did get a reply in 3 days. After approval it takes me a week to send in the passport and 3-4 weeks to get it stamped and back from what I’ve read online, so hoping for the best! But then my VAC would be NYC not sure about yours
