check box and get SSN? does this really work?

Recommended Posts

I remember, during the K3 process, writing somewhere an address that I wanted my SSN mailed to. Now it seems that some people actually get an SSN like this.

Its been two months and I havent seen one. I'm going through AOS so hopefully my EAD will show up sooner rather than later.

Anybody get an SSN by filling in that line? Is it valid for working?

Thanks

I waited for a month and it didnt show up. Downloaded the form, went to the local SSn office and reapplied, 1 week later it arrived. I was cr-1 so not sure on K3 stuff. best of luck


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

If you entered with a K-3 visa you need to have an EAD card before you can be assigned a work authorized SSN.

Enumeration At Entry is only for people age 18 or older that have been issued an immigrant visa and ALL K visa classifications are nonimmigrant visas.
