I have an Australian friend with a F-1 USA student visa. Is he allowed to go thru Canada with a car? Ex. from Michigan to Buffalo.

Try this site: http://www.delta.com/planning_reserv...rmation/visa_passport_information/ for entry requirements. It doesn't guarantee accuracy, though.

Yes. Australian citizens are allowed to visit and transit Canada without a visa. Essentially, the border formalities will be the same as for a US national, only they will require him to show his passport.

But the fastest way from Michigan to Buffalo is from the Ambassdor Bridge clear across the 401 to the 403 and into Buffalo, saves the time it takes to dip under Lake Erie and Ontario.

He could ask for advice at the International students services at his place of study. I studied in Colorado in 2004 and I remember there being some issues with going to either Mexico or Canada but I think this may only be an problem if you need to apply for a visa to travel there rather than get a visa waiver. I went on holiday after finishing my time in Colorado and might have visited Canada (I visited Montana, Idaho and Washington state right on the border) but the official period of J1 visa was up and I was using the 30 day period that you have to exit the country. I probably could have visited Canada but it might have raised some eyebrows and looked dodgy to exit the USA on a J1 visa, get a visa waiver in to Canada and then get a visa waiver to renter back the USA.

No, as someone said, Australians don't require visas to enter Canada therefore will have no problems, especially if he's headed to Buffalo. It's fairly common for people to cut across. As long as his visa is valid for his reentry into the US. Also, he should make sure he's in compliance with any Canada Customs in regards to what he's bringing into Canada.
