K1 fiance driving to US

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We submitted our 129f petition for K1 visa on NOA1 Aug. 15, 08. My fiance plans to drive to visit me. Our visits have been short because of the distance Washington and Saskatchewan and work. My fiance quit his job end of July, rented out his home and plans to move to his daughter's house in another SK town on return. He is semi-retired and has enough money to support himself. We want a lengthy visit. I will be working.

Is this possible? What does he need to be prepared for?

You'll forgive me for laughing. This question gets asked at least every 5 minutes. :P

Visitation FAQ's

Documents required by Canadian citizens and how long they can stay

A copy of the application and NOA is good to carry, also, to show he is going through the process legally. Welcome to VJ!

Good Morning ViVe,

Yes it does get asked a lot.

That is okay.

That's what happens...

He can visit.

Border guards are married to two words:

to live

on vacation

"Visit" to them implies living, go figure.

That's been my experience.

If he can show that he has ties to Canada and that he will be returning, then he will not have a problem.

If he has given up all his stuff and his work and all that, he may have a challenging time of it.

I wish for you a happy reunion ASAP.


SpiritAlight edits due to extreme lack of typing abilities. :)

You will do foolish things.

Do them with enthusiasm!!

Don't just do something. Sit there.
