arrowNew job: It's asking for my country for taxes

So I just got a job on my EAD, (I'm adjusting from a k1), and I'm unsure of how to fill out a form that my employer is requesting. 


It is asking for my country of tax residence. As far as I know, I am no longer a Canadian Resident and not obligated to pay taxes there anymore so I don't know how to fill that out. 

It says "Although you may pay tax in the U.S., your country of Tax Residence CANNOT be the U.S. Your Country of Tax Residence is generally the country to which you owe tax on your "worldwide" income. Typically, your Country of Tax Residence is the same as your country of Permanent Residence; however, if you have lived in a country other than your Country of Permanent Residence immediately before coming to the U.S. to study/work, you may have established Tax Residency in that country."

Hey VJ

I am travelling with my husband back to Canada next month and I have my EAD/AP Combo card so that is not a problem

My question is I will be flying from Canada to the Dominican Republic for a vacation and will be using my passport which still has my maiden name in it. Since we will be flying from Canada and back to Canada can I use my maiden name in my passport to book the flight? Also will I have to show my AP when leaving Canada at the airport or is that strictly for leaving the US.

Please Advise Thank you !

arrowThey made a mistake on our case, do I phone or e-mail Montreal?

So, hopefully this will answer a question! They made a mistake on our case after it went through NVC. They switched my first name to the old name I used (that I had to put down as an alias). It only happened AFTER it hit NVC and got sent to Montreal, as I've phoned in and used my name to get the case # and it's on all the official papers except the NVC letter (our NOA2 was in the proper name!). I am slightly panicking about this now.


Do I phone them? I think their number was 514-398-9695? Or do I email them for a faster response? (I think it was the montreal-niv@state.gov?). And is this going to put a flag on our case? I don't understand how the mix up happened as everything was 100% right as rain! We even included my name change certificate in case they needed that, since some of my passport stamps were in my old passport! (We included my official passport picture as well).

Have another question hoping for some help. I do not have any birth certificate since I was a refugee 25 years ago and never been back to my birth country but I'm a Canadian citizen since 1994. My husband is in the same situation, how am I gonna explain this?

arrowK1 Approved! how long will I need in airport to get through immigration

Hey everyone,

So I got approved for the visa and received everything back! The forum has been a great help!
Now I'm just looking for flights to the states :)

Question is how long does it usually take to go through immigration/customs at the airport when using a K1 Visa? I'll be entering the us from Vancouver airport.

I seem to only have 2 flight options. One having a 3 hour layover and the other is 10 hours...obviously id love to take the 3 hour one but is that going to be enough time? I know the airport fairly well so assuming the flight lands on time I would have around 2.5 hours once I get to the immigration line to wait in line, talk to them and find my gate.

Not sure if this would effect anything but I have been denied entry at that port and was able to withdraw my application to enter. This was 7 months ago and the reason for being denied was for having spent too much time in the states (with my fiancée) over the past 1.5 years. I assume this will delay the process a bit but 3 hours worth?
