As long as your visa is still valid, you are allowed to travel to Canada and request entry (note that a visa doesn't allow you to enter, merely that you can arrive). Also note that you must travel by the date on your visa, it's the last day by which you can enter. Once you arrive, it's up to the immigration official to determine whether or not they'll let ...

Starting from the 15th of March 2016 you'll need an eTA to transit or stay in Canada. This is true for nationals travelling on New Zealand, as well as Taiwanese passports. Quoting from the Canadian CIC website, below is the information for New Zealand citizens: and for Taiwanese citizens: You'll therefore need to secure an eTA to be able to ...

No you will not be allowed to board your flight to Germany. You need to have a valid visa in the country you are boarding from. In case you are not allowed entry into the Schengen, you will be deported to the place your flight originated from. Hence even if you have a valid docs for Germany and India, you will not be allowed to travel to Germany.

of course you can. You can transit anywhere if you have a valid ticket and a route to your destination and the departure city.

Yes, you can do that. Tourist visas are valid for transit in every case of which I am aware (UK, Schengen, US, Canada).

I'm not an expert on Canadian law, but legally speaking the answer seems to be yes. 1) The Government of Canada Help Center specifies that: Please Note: Canadian citizens (including dual citizens) cannot apply for an eTA. 2) The Canadian eTA application website asks you the following question: Indicate if you are a citizen of a country/territory ...

Not illegal, but maybe practically impossible, at least by air. This FAQ question directly address your question: I am a Canadian citizen and a citizen of a visa-exempt country. Can I still fly to Canada with my foreign passport? It confirms that currently (I guess before eTA is required), you can enter Canada using a foreign passport. But it says that ...

You must - re-apply ...

They are accepted everywhere. The new notes are a fairly recent introduction and so we still see a good number of older bills, particularly for smaller denominations. In fact, the transition to polymer notes is not even fully adopted. Just last month, the parking machine at the hospital had a note on it saying to see the guard on duty to change them to ...

Okay, so I contacted the NYC VAC and asked them if the procedure above is correct, and they said that it is indeed the right way to proceed. I hope the following helps. Again, just to clarify, the documents that need to be sent are: VAC Consent Form Valid passport listed in the application Contact information Original letter received through the "MyCIC ...

The Bank of Canada addresses this in their FAQ on the new polymer notes: All notes issued by the Bank of Canada since 1935 have legal tender status and retain their full value. If you don't know how to check notes from past series, exchange them for newer ones at your local bank. You should have no trouble spending them, though if you just want to be ...

If you already have a visitor visa, trouble at the Canadian immigration checkpoint is very rare. To be safe, I'd follow the following points: Don't mention anything about immigration plans unless you are explicitly asked about them. Focus on the purpose of the current trip - to visit various Canadian cities. Have a very clear answer to "when are you going ...

Massachusetts has these, though they are rare and being phased out. They indicate a crosswalk with a signal that can be controlled by pedestrians. They are intended to warn drivers to be prepared to stop/yield for pedestrians. They are generally used at unusual crossings: diagonal, 3-way intersections, 5-way intersections, and are often combined with a ...

You are actually asking two separate questions: When my cruise ship stops in Victoria, will the Canadian border people let me come into the country for a day visit without a passport? When my cruise ship, which was at least briefly in another country, returns to the USA and I want to get off it (probably in Alaska for some day activities, but very ...

The agent did not realize that you were a Canadian resident and thought that you had made a brief trip to Canada. There's a VWP rule that brief trips to Canada, Mexico, or adjacent islands do not reset the 90 day limit given to a VWP traveler upon entry to the US. This is to prevent people from using these countries to extend their stay in the US. For ...

I'm in your situation, being British and having been a Canadian citizen since 2007. If 'the agent' means a US CBP officer, then it's almost certain he did not realize you were a Canadian resident, or decided that without proof of residency to apply the non-resident rules. There is a well-known rule that going from the US to Canada (or Mexico or other ...

I've lived in Calgary all my life, and I can tell you that although it's a beautiful country, I do not recommend you come now; wait until summer. Winters here can be extremely cold (it hit - 35C here yesterday), and it would suck if that ruined your trip. This suggestion of course doesn't apply though if you like skiing/snowboarding, as BC and Alberta are ...

March and April are interesting times in Canada. Much of the country is still very cold. You will find snow in most of the country in March except the very temperate parts (which is essentially the extreme West coast). Even in the warmer parts like Toronto the temperature averages around 10C in April. There might well be snow. In the central cities like ...
