K1 Visa DS-160, U.S. Travel Visas

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So I've been working on my DS-160 (not ready to submit yet but wanted it to be ready to send as soon as I can) and I've been having some issues with the question "Have you ever been issued a U.S. Visa?". I'm a bit confused about the whole Canada/USA travel agreement and whether the few stamps I've received on my Visa pages count towards a "yes" answer. The question seems to be referring to the visa cards that look like this:

but I'm not 100% sure and never had to think about it before the whole K1 process because I was always travelling for tourism purposes with my longest trip being 25 days

Presumably you are a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport:

 

Canadians generally do not need a tourist visa to travel to the States since they can just use their Canadian passport (which is not the same as those who have a tourist visa issued by the US).  What you have stamped is your Canadian passport---it's not a "visa" in the context of the question on the form.

Perfect, yes thank you that was what I was hoping but I was worried about technicalities. I forgot to specify but yes I am a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport.

Just a friendly reminder never to post photos of documents that reveal personal info such as full names, dates or case numbers. I know this is just a dummy image you included for reference, so we will leave it for now. I'm just adding a reminder in case new users find this thread and don't understand not to post personal info. :)
