Travelling to Cuba through Canada. Do i need a transit visa

Hello,

I am a bit confused regarding the Canada transit visa requirements. hopefully someone here can help me.

I am a citizen of Russia, travelling from Munich to Cuba. I have a flight connection at toronto pearson intnl airport. The incoming and outgoing flights are from terminal 1 so i dont have to change terminals. I have 10 hours to change my planes on the same day.

I would like to ask if I need visa if I am not changing terminal and have both flights in one ticket from Canada air.

Thank you so much for reply! :)

You were told about the requirements when you were a Czech citizen.

Probably. Just use Canada's very handy tool. It's official, unlike us.

OP needs an ETA and has already been given this info in his previous thread, where he said he was a Czech citizen.
