Unless you are from a visa exempt country you need a visa to enter the US, see http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/without/without_1260.html

Hi Unik ,
I lived in USA for 4 years before I moved to Canada. I applied as Quebec Skilled worker . By getting the Certificate of Selection, I then applied for the PR at the branch of Buffalo , NY. I can say that once my medicals were receivded in Ottawa , it just took 2-3 months to get my visa from Buffalo and the landing was very easy( by bus). I ve been living in Montreal and things go well. I never regret my decision to come to Canada.
Well I speak French and Spanish very fluently but I don t want to write in these languages because I want everybody to benefit from these information. So let s share in a common language , lol. If you ve any concerns, do not hesitate to  post your message.

Thanks for your reply. I'm currently living in the US and I'm projecting to apply for the QSW. How is work in Montreal, the weather compare to the US?
We will need a visa to come back to the state unless you have green card.
Thanks

If you have a green card in the US, you will probably lose it at some point after you take up residence in Canada.  Years ago I knew people who kept their green card by going to the US every 6 months but after 9-11 they check up on it more and once they see you don't live in the US anymore, they will take your card.  A permanent resident card is for permanent residents.  Same as Canada, you can not keep it forever if you choose to live elsewhere.

Can visit the US embassy for an interview closest to where one resides. Before that the infividual must fill in an online application and pay the fees.

There is an option to upload a photo online as well.

I just did mine last week.
