Hi I moved to NYC a few months ago from Ottawa. I have brought suitcases filled with my personal belongings but on a flight. My parents are going to drive from Ottawa to NYC and bring some of my other things that are more difficult to fly with; Dyson vacuum, a chair, boxes with kitchen supplies, pillows and bedding. Does anyone have experience crossing the boarder while moving someone else’s personal belongings? I want to set them up so they can cross and don’t have any trouble. Is there someone I can call or what can I give them to help? thanks
Hey all, Just wanted to post this in the hope it helps someone else not waste as much time at the DMV as i have. I entered the US on a K1 visa back in April. I've had nothing but frustration with the local DMV (Santa Ana). After going down twice (without appointment) and giving up twice because of the monstrous lines. I finally made an appointment which I attended last week. I had heard I would have to wait until I got my EAD to be able to apply for a full Californian DL. I had however, discovered I could apply for a lesser DL in the meantime called an AB 60. So at my appointment I asked if I could apply for the AB 60 and was told my UK passport and SSN wouldn't be enough and it would need to be sent away for 3 months to a year for a 'secondary review'. I thought that cant be right!? After arguing my case and the employee calling 'an expert on this type of case' I got no where and gave up. So, today on the DMV CA website, I found the list of requirements for the AB 60. More in intriguingly, a list of acceptable Passports that DON'T need a secondary review. Low and behold! The UK Passport and nearly every other country in the world is on the list!!! So annoyed I wasted so much time. Rest assured I will be returning to said DMV with my print out in hand!!! Anyways, long story short... ALL YOU NEED TO APPLY FOR AN AB 60 licence in CA Your Passport Your SSN (temporary is fine too) Proof of address (I'm using my SSN letter attached to my card with address on) Here is the full list of requirements on the DMV California website: https://www.dmv.org/ca-california/ab-60-drivers-license.php Also, I'm sure this information is nothing new to some people and there are already posts similar to this BUT, I looked and I couldn't find anything giving me a definite answer. Thanks and hope this helps some of you!
I'm really hoping someone can help me out, i've been looking for answers to this for so so long now. Basically, I have my UK driving license. I want to drive in NC when I arrive on my K1 visa. 1) Can I use my UK driving license for 60 days? (Ok, so i've read online that in NC you can use an international driving license (i.e. a UK license) to drive for up to 60 days as long as you are not a resident ??) 2) How and when can I apply for a NC license? (so again, ive read online that to get a NC license you must present ID (passport, SSN), proof of legal stauts (I-94 and passport stamp) and proof of insurance (can I get on my fiance's insurance?) 3) Has ANYONE ever been able to do this in North Carolina before getting their EAD ? (so far I have NOT read ANYONE who has been able to sucessfully do this!) I dont think I can live there for months without being able to drive so any info please help.
Hey all, I arrived in NJ from the UK back in September 2018 on a K1 visa and have since got married and sent off the relivent paperwork to the USCIS. I have got a NOA for the green card and for the work permit advising that all has been received and is currently being worked on. Back in November 2018 I went to Philadelphia to get my biometrics done. I am trying to obtain a driver's licence. I have been driving for 12 years on a full UK licence. The NJ policy is that when applying for a licence the individual has to provide 6 points of ID. I believed that I had them. Infact the documents that I presented equated to 9 points. But when I was going through the process the individual checking my ID said that my I-94 has expired. Which it had back in December 2018. I explained that it shows my last entry into the US and that I am currently applying to be a green card holder. I showed my NOA's for my work permit and Adjustment of Status and Biometrics. But apparently that wasn't adequate. She said that I need to get another document from the USCIS. I couldn't understand what document she was after. Can someone please advise? Thank you in advance for your help.
