Denied at us border!

On Saturday I was going shopping with a friend and got denied entry into the USA (I'm from Canada) I was fingerprinted, had my picture taken...everything. They said I needed to prove I was a "temporary visitor for pleasure" Told me I would be in the system for a year and gave me a list of stuff to bring when I wanted to travel to the states at a later time...rent receipts, bank statments, so on. I asked if I could go home and grab them and come right back he said "yes" We decided to shop in Canada instead. haha.

My bf was waiting for us in the States for shopping and then he was coming back over with me. We got engaged this weekend!

So, now we are thinking of doing the fiance visa, since he is living in beautiful Tampa Florida and makes more money there than both of us would working here in Canada.

My question is...does the fact that I have been denied entry into the states make getting a fiance visa any more difficult?

Thanks!

Denials only affect subsequent entries under the category you tried to enter with. You were denied as a Canadian tourist, so subsequent entries as a Canadian tourist will be more difficult, as the CBP officer explained to you.

A K-1 visa admittance is a different category of entrance, so it will not be affected at all by your "record" in the Canadian tourist category.

I'm thinking that I may have to start carrying that evidence with me. I always cross with nothing more than my passport and my Nexus card...seeing as I'm crossing even more often (almost every weekend) as we are trying to meet with vendors and plan our wedding (with a guesstimate of a wedding date...) eventually my luck will probably run out...

Sorry you were denied.

Thanks guys!

Yeah I would definitely start carrying those papers with ya!

I couldn't believe it! I don't usually get upset about stuff but since this has happened I don't feel like myself.

What really sucks is I was going to use my vacation time and go see my fiance in Tampa for two weeks. Now I'm scared to do that!

For the K-1 Visa you are fine.

If you have the papers they suggested then you should be ok for a visit too. Just stay positive, pleasant and tell the truth. Keep your answers short but to the point.

Dont be afraid. Never give up. I feel your pain. Ive been there. And yes they might have the power. But dont let that get to you or bring you down. Because you would be giving them the satisfaction and whom believes in them. Be strong and never give up. And dont be hesitant on venting. If you want you can vent to me. im a good listener. not much of a talker it seems it gets me in trouble lol (I gotta learn to deal with my emotions better) :blush: good luck and be prepared and calm and collected as many said in here even tho its very hard to do believe me.

From someone who's been there, it will not affect any application for another class of visa. It will, however, make you visiting the US in the future more difficult. I'm sorry this happened to you but make sure next time you cross that you bring STRONG ties to Canada like a lease, or job or utility bills, etc.

Also, you'll have to declare the denial during the K-1 process but don't let that discourage you. Just tell the truth and it will be fine

Good luck
