I am a citizen of India and an international student in Canada. I am taking an airindia flight from India to Canada and during web check-in, they are asking for both "Visa Issuing Country" and "Country where the visa applies." I'm confused about the answers. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

  • I think they are asking because you can enter Canada on visa from US as well in which case visa issuing country and where visa applies will be different. Sep 3 at 17:10

    @TravellingJuggernaut what are you talking about? No visa from the US can substitute for any Canadian visa.

    Shb1729: I'd be inclined to respond "Canada" to both. Canada issued your visa, and your visa applies to Canada. These things are sometimes somewhat redundant. (The only reason I can think of right now to ask these questions separately is that some Schengen countries issue visas on behalf of other Schengen countries because of mutual representation agreements. This is obviously not relevant to Canada, but the form design probably doesn't take that into account.)

    @TravellingJuggernaut cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=1020&top=16 "Do I need a Canadian visa if I have a United States visa? Yes, most travellers need a visitor visa or an eTA to travel to, or transit through, Canada. What you need depends on: the type of travel document you will travel with; the country that issued your travel document; your nationality; and how you will travel to Canada."
