I am a Cuban with a US resident card and I'm traveling from Canada to Cuba and I was wondering if I need a Canadian visa to come back from Cuba to get into Canada if I'm using a Cuban passport.

    that's not my question. Unless you were born in Canada, you got in somehow, yes? Did you use your Cuban passport? Did you need a visa? Feb 8 '14 at 14:14

    you are just repeating what is in your question. I don't understand why you are concerned about going from Cuba to Canada but don't appear concerned about the first step, going from the US to Canada. If you expect them to easily let you in that time, at the start of your trip, why do you expect any issues the second time you enter Canada, after having been in Cuba? Either you're admissible to Canada or you're not, and entering from the US is not that different from entering from Cuba. Feb 8 '14 at 21:43

I have U.S. residency (Green Card). Do I need a visa to visit Canada or can I use my Green Card?

As a U.S. Green Card holder, you do not need a temporary resident visa to travel to Canada. At the Canadian border, you will need to present your valid passport and Green Card.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada


Because you have a green card, you don't need a passport or visa to get into Canada.

When travelling by land or sea directly from the U.S., you will only need to provide proof of your U.S. lawful permanent resident status (such as your Green Card).
