  • Do I need canadian passport?
    Apr 18, 2016
    Hi, I am indonesian and now currently studying in Japan. I am planning to go to Chicago, my itinerary will be Kansai-Vancouver-Chicago, I have B1/B2 US visa. All the flights will be with Delta Airlines).In Vancouver will layover around 4 hours. Do I need Canadian Visa?


    Since you are an Indonesian with a valid US Visa you are eligible for Canadian Transit Without Visa: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/twov/travellers.asp


    Thank you so much Zap :) *(I was incorrect, I wrote Delta but it supposed to be Air Canada)


  • Can I go out while I am waiting for next flight?

    There is 11 hours lay over at YVR. I'm arriving from US and transfer at YVR to Asia. SInce 11 hours is a long time to wait and seat in the airport only, I am planning to downtown Vancouver and come back for my flight. I would like to figure out whether I will be allowed to go out and come back.


    What is your citizenship?


    South Korea


    South Koreans don't need a visa to visit Canada - you can go where you want on your layover.


    Thank a lot Zap!

    My mom just got her Canadian PR and will be coming from Asia. The flight I booked only has 2 hours lay over in Vancouver before a connecting flight to Regina. Considering she has to go thru all the questioning in Customs & Immigration as first time Immigrant, do you think 2 hours will be enough? Won't she missed her next flight? Thanks a lot


    It should be enough time.
