  • Our Story
    Our immigration journey is now complete. We met on line at a mutual interest group in 2001; started to 'chat' in 2002; started to really chat early in 2003; first met in person 2003; became engaged in 2003, and filed for K-1 in June, 2003. I moved to the US along with my 6 cats in May 2004; we married June 2004 (on the one year anniversary of our NOA for our K-1) ,and applied for AOS in July, 2004. AOS was approved 3 weeks before our 2nd anniversary in May 2006. We filed to remove conditions in February 2008, and I received my 10 year card in February 2009. I filed for US citizenship the last day of April 2009, had my biometrics in early June, my interview in mid August and became a US citizen on August 26, 2009 - by far the easiest and fastest leg of our 6 year visa journey.

  1. Yeah, it is interesting to see how different states handles things. Florida has a lot of Canadian Snowbirds so I guess are more used to dealing with foreign licenses. Out of state tags with out of state licenses as a student would not cause you problems but yeah, as a resident, it does. North Georgia is absolutely beautiful! I've been here since 2004 and there is much I enjoy about Georgia - the climate (except for July and August!), the absolute beauty of nature here and the abundance of wildlife, and for the most part I have made some good friends. There are other things that I don't appreciate, the politics being one, lol! The immigration process can be tedious and cumbersome - and that will be the worst of it if you are lucky:-). It is worth it, though, in the long run:-).
  2. An old post, yes, but alas - there is no way around having to do the written and driving tests in Georgia. No, they do not have reciprocity with Canada and you are only allowed to drive for a limited period of time on an out-of-state license if you are living in Georgia. That being said, the Drivers' manual is available on line at the Department of Driver Services website https://dds.georgia.gov/ and if you are an experienced driver elsewhere you will have no problems with the driving part of the test. Study the manual and be sure to look at those items that are specific to Georgia (how long to transfer if from out of state, etc.) and you should have no problem. If you are able to do the test at one of the offices outside of Atlanta proper you will have a shorter wait and better experience :-).
