Does a Canadian passport holder need a transit visa for a London transit when traveling from Nigeria to Toronto, Canada?

possible duplicate of Do I need a UK or Ireland transit visa when flying from the US to a Schengen country?. The question is different but the answer applies - use the convenient web site linked there. The answer is no, Canadian citizens do not need a visa to transit (or even enter) the UK. – Nate Eldredge Jul 12 '14 at 18:44
The other question has almost nothing in common with this one and is therefore not a duplicate. – Relaxed Jul 13 '14 at 0:05

1 Answer 1

If you can enter a country, you can generally transit there without worrying about the destination and all other complex rules for transit (which only apply to people who cannot enter the country without visa).

Since Canadian citizens can enter the UK for tourism and other purposes, they can also transit there without visa.
