Car question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My car lease was up this month and we decided to buy it out at the end. I'm NOT taking the car with me. After I move, my parents are going to be keeping the vehicle, but for a number of reasons, they can't put it in their name. It will remain in my name, and yes there are payments on it, but my parents will be making them after I leave.

Will anyone (i.e. government on either side of the border) care about this? Will it be a concern that I have a vehicle registered in my name in Canada when moving to the U.S.?

Take it from me, absolutely not, they dont even check your Canadian stuff even if you register and buy another car here in the states no, they dont care....especially credit....you will have a total clean slate when you come to the states my friend.... :thumbs: if you have anymore questions, you know where to find me! lol

With regards to credit, they CAN check ur cdn credit if they want to, they very rarely do. But leaving ur car in Canada should not be a problem.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
