    I have got a job offer from Bermuda, and I have already sent my paperwork to my employer for a work permit. I was looking at flight tickets and learnt that I need a transit visa for either USA, UK or Canada. I hold an Indian Passport, but my previous visas to US and UK have expired. I wanted to know, which is the easiest and most affordable out of the three. I feel spending money on a transit visa is a sheer and absolute waste of money and time, but rules are rules. For example, I don’t want to waste $160 for a transit visa for the US.

    Transit Visa Prices

    You have the answer for US transit visas which is correct and the UK charges two types of fees.

    Direct Airside Transit visa ( DATV ) Р£32
    Visitor in Transit visa Р£59
    The cost may vary slightly depending on which country you’re in currently.

    Canada is not a stopover for any airlines I know on your route so I have not provided their arrangements.

    As you have held a tourist visa previously you will not an issue securing a visa, but you are correct transit visas seem like a complete waste of time and money and do little for security or stopping people applying for asylum on arrival. I wish you the best with your new job.
