Travelling through Keflavík airport in Iceland
Passengers, travelling onwards through Keflavík airport in Iceland, that do not hold a passport from a Schengen Member State, do not need a Schengen transit visa unless leaving the transit area. That means that if you are just passing by the airport, on your way to your destination you do not need a Schengen visa. But if you are planning on visiting Iceland before continuing your travel you will need to apply for one.
Some countries require that all airlines collect Advanced Passenger Information (API/APIS) from all passengers prior to travel.
It is a requirement of the US Department of Homeland Security for all passengers to have a valid visa, or for those eligible to travel under the Visa Waiver Program, to apply for an Electronic System Travel Authorisation (ESTA).
Passengers travelling to Canada must have a valid visa, or for those eligible, apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). This includes those with a study/work permit. Exceptions include Canadian citizens or dual Canadian citizens, Canadian permanent residents, or U.S. citizen. (However, lawful permanent residents of the U.S. need an eTA if travelling by air.) We always recommend getting an eTA before booking your flight to Canada.
