  1. This is from another thread in the Canada forum, but I don't know if travelling together is required, or showing proof that you are married to an American. Honestly I won't want to go to NYC right now with that many cases.
  2. Thanks for sharing the info! I think I'm considered a Lawful Permanent Resident because I already have the green card in hand. And my wife (U.S citizen) will be travelling with me, so I guess we should be okay.
  3. Did you have trouble at the border? I'm trying to sell my house then move and that's not going well, no one is buying houses. But after I sell my house, I sure hope I can move otherwise I'll be homeless.
  4. Here is my bizarre experience with this. I got my IR1 visa last October. First time I tried to cross the border shortly after I got the visa, I was told I wasn't moving and wouldn't stamp my visa. They would let me into U.S, but as a visitor. So I turned around and came home. Then in January I got an interview in the U.S. I crossed the border in Calgary airport. They were going to process my visa, but my flight already left so they couldn't. After I changed my ticket, I had to cross the border again. The agent didn't ask me to go to the office. I assumed that my visa was not processed. Now in March, my visa was about to expire (I was trying to sell my property in Canada), and I crossed the border by land. They did processed my visa without issues, but they said my visa was already processed in January. They said my green card might be already mailed to my U.S address. Well it wasn't. I came back to Canada on the same day. One week later, my green card was mailed. After I received it, I noticed that the issue date was January. I'm still stuck in Canada because of the pandemic and I couldn't sell my house. In short, just ask at the border. Most likely they are going to say no, but it doesn't hurt to try. They are very friendly in general. You can't hide the fact you have an immigration visa. Once they scan your passport, they can see it.
  5. So once you have the green card, you are no longer considered a Canadian resident, even you still have job/house etc in Canada? That doesn't seem to make sense.
  6. It's 2"x2", with white background. Passport photo places know what to do, just tell them it's U.S passport photo
  7. Try http://www.commissionaires.ca/en/national/home Got mine in about a week.
  8. I would just go ahead and submit it anyway, they are often pretty fast to tell you if there is a problem. You can even put notes in the submission. When I sent in my marriage certificate, I was told it was not the right format. I then submitted it again, same one as before, and left a note with it, it was accepted.
  9. That's very likely, July-September is vacation time. It sucks to move in the winter though, unless you are going somewhere warm.
  10. I believe this thread is for Canadian applicants only.
  11. I think you should get another email soon. If not call them and ask for an update.
  12. You may not reach CC yet. The email subject should be: Notice regarding your Immigrant Visa Case becoming Documentarily Qualified And the body: The National Visa Center (NVC) received all of the fees, forms, and documents that are required prior to attending an immigrant visa interview at a U.S. Embassy/Consulate General overseas. NVC will work with the U.S. Embassy/Consulate General in MONTREAL, CAN to schedule an interview appointment for you. Once we have confirmed an interview date, we will send a notice to you, your petitioner and attorney (if applicable). Please do NOT make any travel arrangements, sell property, or give up employment until you have received an immigrant visa from the U.S. Embassy/Consulate General.
