Do I need a visa if my plane is stopping in Canada?
I am an Indian national working in the US. I have a business trip planned for Germany in the coming months and my flight makes a layover stop for one night in Toronto. Will I need to make arrangements for a visa for this layover in Canada?
May be .Some visas can be granted on arrival or by prior application at the country’s embassy or consulate, or sometimes through a specialized travel agency with permission from the issuing country in the country of departure. If there is no embassy or consulate in one’s home country, then one would have to travel to a third country and try to get a visa issued there. The need or absence of need of a visa generally depends on the citizenship of the applicant, the intended duration of the stay, and the activities that the applicant may wish to undertake in the country he visits; these may delineate different formal categories of visas, with different issue conditions.
The country of residence is a factor in determining the visa requirements for Indian passport holders when visiting some countries. For example, an Indian Citizen residing in the United States holding a permanent resident permit does not need a visa to travel to Canada, Mexico, and many countries and territories in the Caribbean. Indian citizens resident in Japan can travel to the Republic of Korea for tourism and short business trips. Indian citizens do not need a visa to travel and work in Nepal or Bhutan.
