    As far as I know Yes, that is if you don't have canadian PR card. Check with French embassy before travelling.

    Transit through Paris

    Hi,
    I am traveling to Delhi through Paris and was wondering about the Transit visa situation.

    Most of the french consulate website says that If you have a valid US visa stamped on your passport then you do not need the Airport Transit Visa.

    However, someone mentioned that this rule might only apply if your layover in Paris is less than 6 hrs.

    I have a valid US visa when I travelling but my layover in Paris is 7.5 hrs.

    Does anyone have any experiences to share with regard to transiting through Paris. Does anyone know if I am required to have a Transit Visa?

    Any pointers would be great.

    regards and thanks in advance,
    Ashish

    if one has a valid h1b multiple entry us visa in the passport
    then paris transit visa is not required

    otherwise transit visa for paris (immaterial of time of layover)
    is required
