Does it require a visa to travel to Canada with a Permit-C?

Hello everyone,
I just discovered this website a few minutes ago while googling, and I wanted to ask a question, do I have to apply for a visa to travel to Canada if I have a permit-C?
I would really appreciate answers.
Thank you.

Re: Does it require a visa to travel to Canada with a Permit-C?

Depends on which country you passport is from.

Swiss permits are irrelevant.

What is the "blue passport'? I don't know the colors of passports.

I don't think Canadian official are interested in what permit you have in a third country. Are they?

I would imagine it only matters what country you are from.

Not officially, but having and producing for inspection to a CBSA Officer your permission to live and work in CH (A "C" permit is all you need to join the Geneva Municipal Police) may have some sway power in convincing a Canada Border Services Officer that you are a low risk in regards to illegally working in Canada.

Whether or not you need a visa depends on which Country's passport you will be using.

You have a light blue swiss issued "travel document"? I would expect that you do need a visa and that you need to check with the airlines for what they need to allow you to travel.

He doesn't have a country passport. He only has Swiss issued travel document. These are issued to refugees and stateless people. Technically it now is his passport. But it's not 100% the same. So he'll need to get in touch with the Canadian embassy and the airlines.

Apparently greyhound doesn't have one, otherwise they would have already reacted accordingly. But.. they have the valuable, hochwertige...

It's very simple, some people are complicating it.

According to Google you do not need a visa. But, personally, I would double check with both the Canadian embassy and the airline.
