9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello

Guys I need your input on this matter, In couple days from now I'm leaving Morocco to USA on a CR1 visa.

The thing is there are no direct flights where I'm headed so I have to go through Europe, my question is will they let me stay in the airport while waiting for my connecting flight?

Where else will u go 

in Canada need transit visa if u land there 1st / 7 USD to apply online thru Canada web page and instant approval

BTW nice to fly into a city like Montreal as they do customs and immigration services  for the USA

if u change and go thru France, u don't need one with a valid US visa unless u have a change of airports or the ticket is bought in 2 stages (like a ticket to France and separate one to US)

Hi,

Yes, traveling on a Moroccan passport will require a transit visa depending on the country or countries you travel through on your way to the USA.

 

I recommend going through Germany as they have the least strict transit visa policy.

In these five airports in Germany, you can stay at the International Transit Area without a visa:

  • Frankfurt/Main airport (open 24 hours)
  • Munich Airport (open 24 hours)
  • Hamburg Airport (4:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. only)
  • Düsseldorf Airport (6:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. only) and if the airline has arranged the transit beforehand with the authorities responsible for cross-border security (the Federal Police)
  • Cologne/Bonn Airport (4:30 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. only)
  • Berlin Airport (06:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. only) at Berlin-Tegel, for Air Berlin passengers only.

Trek Salma!
