Hi All,

I've been searching for an answer to this question for a while, still with no solid answer. This is for those of you who entered the US on a K3...

I tried to activate my K3 at the US border but was turned down because I wasn't actually "moving" at that time. I was allowed into the US but not for my K3 to be activated. Does anyone know if that is correct, you have to be moving at the time to have it activated? It is a multiple entry visa so I'm not sure why it would matter.

The reason for this is that I need to be able to work in Canada for a little while longer (husband is in school), but we would like to start the EAD process now. I am the only one working so I can't move down there right away and neither of us work for three months while we wait for my EAD.

Thanks:)

This would have been because you told them you weren't immigrating yet. Generally, you don't have an option about whether to "activate" or initially use the K3 visa but maybe procedures vary in a border town. I would suggest simply pursuing the CR1 visa by pushing the I-130 through NVC. Then you may never use the K3 or even if you do, I'd rather pay $400 than $1010. CR1 enters as a permanent resident with full work privileges and a green card in the mail shortly.
