  • Enough connection time for 1st time landing process for immigrants
    Mar 12, 2016
    Hi, we are arriving pearson tronto terminal 1 at 7:00 from cairo on Egyptair. Then we are flying on aircanada to montreal at 9:00 , do we have enough time to finalize our landing process in Cbsa? What is the walking distance from T1 arrival to the aircanada boarding counter?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We are arriving from Amsterdame on KLM and transfering to WestJet to Calgary. They have given us 1 hour and 20 minutes to do this. Do we have enough time to make the connection and do we have to pick up our luggage


    Yes, you will have to pick up your baggage to go through Canadian customs. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I think it's barely enough time if everyhing goes smoothly. What airline are you flying to Chicago?


  • US-Pre-Clearence
    Mar 7, 2016
    Hi, Our flight is TXL-MUC-YYZ-RSW. Maybe a silly question. What will happen, if my baggage didnt make it to YYZ. How long do i have to stay in the " holding- area " at US Pre-Clearence?, so that i dont miss connecting flight. Will they tell me, that baggage didnt make it and i can go on to the immigration counter,


    Yes, they should be able to tell you if the bags weren't on the flight.


    Thank you, for your quick answer. How do i know it, at a normal baggage carousell, you see the last baggage sign, but there? Do i have to wait a specific time, will it be shown on the monitors, or will they tell it to me when i enter the waiting hall? Thank you


    You will be funneled towards Canadian passport control and the international baggage claim after you arrive. The exact claim your bags will be on will be on the monitors.


  • Connecting Questions
    Mar 7, 2016
    Hello! Flying to Paris on our honeymoon - we're leaving from Orlando, FL, USA and have a a layover in Toronto for a little less than 2 hours (something like 1 hour 45 minutes). We booked our flights all through AirFrance and it says our flight from FL to Toronto is going to be an AirFrance flight but provided by WesJet and arriving in Terminal 3. And our outbound flight is Toronto to Paris from Terminal 3 - AirFrance. Was just wondering if we need to pick up our bags, and then recheck them, as well as go through customs and security? According to the Pearson website, we will need to do all of that before we board our Paris flight and I'm concerned that we won't have enough time.


    Yes, the Pearson airport connection guide is correct. You should still have enough time.


  • Is 1h40mins enough for international connection?
    Mar 6, 2016
    I'm traveling from Munich to Atlanta on Sat evening in the middle of April (I would arrive at 6:55pm on Sat to YYZ, Toronto) from Germany. My next flight would be at 8:35pm to Atlanta. Is 1h40mins enough for immigration/re-check the bags? The other option of a trip is a 3 hours layover.


    I personally would be much more comfortable with the 3 hour layover.


  • Connecting from T1 to T3
    Mar 6, 2016
    Hello! I have an AC flight landing at T1 at YYZ, then 2 hours to get yo Terminsl 3 to catch an Alitalia flight. Is this enough time to make this connection?


    Is your Air Canada flight domestic or International? Do you have checked bags?


    Air Canada domestic (flying in from Windsor), yes one checked bag. It's booked on one ticket, so I assume AC and Alitalia have an interline agreement.


    Then I think you have enough time.

    I am flying from the UK to USA Florida via Toronto with Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge. I have 1hour 45 min connection. It is in the same terminal. Do I have enough time to get through US immigration? Do I need a visa for Canada? Thanks


    It should be enough time. What is your citizenship?


    British.I've got my ESTA but nothing for Canada yet.


    You do not need a Canadian Visa but you need Electronic Travel Authorization.


  • Layover in YYZ
    Mar 3, 2016
    I am flying to Istanbul, Turkey from USA and the layover is in YYZ. I don;t have Canadian visa, I have a turkish passport with a US visa only. Do I need any type of Canadian visa or am I good for the layoever to go from one gate to the other?


    You need a Canadian Transit Visa http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp


  • connecting flight from US to London with Layover at YYZ
    Mar 1, 2016
    Greetings. I am a Filipino citizen with a Filipino passport who has a US Business Visitor Visa. I plan to fly to London Gatwick Airport from Dallas Fort Worth via WestJet. I saw in the itinerary that I will have a layover at YYZ for 2 hours and 33 minutes connecting to London. I read recently that a connecting flight that passes through YYZ may require a transit Visa or an electronic Transit authorisation (eTA). I would just like to verify this. Also will 2 hours and 33 mins be enough to go through customs if ever in time for my flight?Thank you very much


    Since you will be arriving in Toronto on American Airlines (Westjet does not fly from DFW to YYZ) You are not eligible for the Transfer Without Visa Program that you otherwise would have been eligible for. You will either need to find another way to London or apply for a Canadian transit visa - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/twov/travellers.asp


    Duly noted. Thank you so much. The reply is very much appreciated


    One last inquiry.I just read the eligibility guidelines for the Transfer Without A Visa Program.If I fly to Toronto Pearson Airport via Air Canada from Dallas Fort Worth then take WestJet from YYZ then to London Gatwick, will I be eligible for the Transfer Without A Visa Program?Thank you so much


    No, you will not be eligible for TWOV because you have to transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1.


    Sorry from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3. Still same answer.


    Thank you so much


    It seems easy enough to apply for an electronic Transit Visa online. That may be my option as I pass through Toronto Pearson on the way to London. Thank you very much.

    That should be just enough time. Your flight to Halifax will be operated by Westjet.

    Flying from Seattle to YHZ via YYZ. Do I clear customs in YYZ or YHZ? I have 1.5 hrs in Toronto. Is that enough to time for connection?


    You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You should have enough time.


    Thank you! Our flights are United Airlines. Will I need to retrieve my checked bags before heading to customs?


    Sorry, that question is meant for when we are flying from YHZ to Seattle with the stop over inYYZ. Do I need to pick up my checked bags inn order to clear customs?

    Feb 24, 2016
    I'm arriving from YUL aat YYZ and and connecting on a flight to EWR. Do ineed to pick up my bag or will it be routed to my connecting flight?


    Yes, your bags will be in US Immigration and Customs preclearance for you to take through US Customs, then you will immediately re-check them.


    Thank you for responding so quickly (and probably to a question you've answered a million times)!


  • Terminal 1 arrival ..Terminal 3 departure - Pearson
    Feb 21, 2016
    Arriving from YQG on AC, must get baggage and proceed to Terminal 3 to fly to YVR with Westjet then on to AUK with Air NZ. We are ticketed by Air NZ. Not quite sure how to proceed after picking up luggage in Terminal 1 . Do we access the LINK from terminal 1 from level 5 of parking garage then check in with Westjet in Terminal 3? Am I on the right track? Thanks.


  • connecting from USA to Canada
    Feb 8, 2016
    I am coming into YYZ on Delta from the USA and continuing on Delta to YHZ. I am told I have to pick up my baggage and recheck it and go through Canada customs. I did not have to pick up and recheck baggage on my way through to USA on Air Canada from YHZ. Can I not clear customs in YHZ when I return? I will only have about75 mins to do this.
