My wife currently has her US Permanent Resident Card and we are traveling from Texas to Brazil via Toronto, Canada on Air Canada. Question is -- will their be a problem transiting through Canada with a US Permanent Resident Card? I didn't know if I should contact Air Canada or USCIS? Thanks!

In general, Brazilians need a visa even when in Canada during transit. However, your wife possesses a US Permanent Resident Card. All people who possess a valid US green card and have it in their possession are exempt from a visitor or transit visa.

With a US green card they will not need a visa.

Everyone, thank you for the replies! Good information to know before we purchase the ticket. Good to know we do not need an extra visa for transiting/connecting through Canada.

Good Luck with your trip... I just want to add how amusing I find it that you have to fly north to canada, then back south to go to Brazil. What a crazy logistical system we live in :rofl:

Is that what we mean by going around our "butt" to get to our elbow???? :wow:

We are planning our trip for the Christmas and New Year's holidays and the airlines (United/Continental, Delta and American) ticket prices out of DFW are 'very' expensive. Air Canada is the only reasonable choice ~ $1300 each vs. $1500 - 2000 each. I've flown Air Canada before to see my wife before she was in the states and got fouled up because the pilots flew to Dallas and ran out of hours to fly so had to wait for another crew which meant I missed my international connection. After arriving in Toronto Air Canada was very accomodating and rebooked me on the next flight that evening. Only bad deal was I was not properly prepared for the extremely cold weather and had to get a hotel room for the day.
