Travelling while applying from Canada

My wife is going through the green card process in Canada. I am American and the petitioner. She wants to go visit some friends is the U.S. now for a few weeks of the summer. Will she not be allowed over the border? We sent in the petition, and they deposited the check, but the NVC hasn't asked for the next check to be sent it.

Anybody gone through this and know the answer? Do you know anyone who has been denied entry to the US while applying for a green card from canada?

Moving this to the General Immigration Questions forum.

Laboyzz, you will find numerous examples of people who have successfully entered the United States with a family visa pending. You will also find some, but comparatively few, examples of those who weren't so successful. Please see the visitation FAQ's link in my signature for additional information. You may also wish to visit the Canada forum to read a number of threads on this very issue.

Have a nice visit.

When she comes to visit have her bring with her 'proof of her ties to Canada'. Things like a letter from her employer acknowledging that she is off work from such and such a date and expected back on such and such a date; a copy of a lease or mortgage or ongoing monthly bills for her residence (utilities, phone, internet, hydro, etc), a return ticket, things like that. US border officials believe that everyone at everyone they arrive at the border are really intending immigrants - and as your wife is an eventual intending resident, she needs to reassure them that she isn't 'immigrating' on this visit. Have her carry a copy of your paperwork for immigration as well, including whatever receipts you have received - this helps to show her 'intent' is to follow the proper immigration process and get the visa, not try to enter and stay illegally. Good luck.
