    Nexus Card - 3 Year Rule (Combined USA and Canada Stay?)

    That's the same link I referred to as well. CBSA Link (Canada) - https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/prog/nexus/application-demande-eng.html CBP Link (US) - https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/nexus/nexus-eligibility Just again for clarity for everyone, only the following are...

    Nexus Card - 3 Year Rule (Combined USA and Canada Stay?)

    Link - https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/prog/nexus/application-demande-eng.html I think you may be looking at this wrong. The first line of Nexus eligibility clearly states- "You must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada or the U.S., or a Mexican national who is also a member of the Viajero...

    Nexus Card - 3 Year Rule (Combined USA and Canada Stay?)

    Well, you definitely have to be at least a PR of one of the countries to apply in the first place. So there's that. Definitely some conflicting stories out there, but good to hear that you got through with 3 years combined in both countries. Thanks.

    Hey everyone, So good to see that so many of you completed your landing. I did too. Sharing my experience below. :) We drove from New Jersey to Scarborough via Peace Bridge in Buffalo using a rental car on 26th December. We stayed at a friends place, who along with her family, drove to US with...

    Thanks ! This really helps. Yes, my visa (H1) does allow me to come freely into US. So we should be able to go in for the soft landing, come back and then go in again before our PR cards arrive. That's a big relief !

    US-based applicants, let's connect here

    Agree with both noscaf2014 and trumprefugee.. if you are a citizen, go through a channeler and you would get it really quick. But,if you are a PR or on visa, it is best to do it as soon as possible, assuming that you are confident with your score and profile getting picked up in one of the...

    So sorry for the late response. I sent a mail to the email address on the PPR email requesting for a change to NYC visa office. Reason - Don't want to send passport via mail and want to drop it off at the VAC by hand.

    Nope. That's what I got back as well - standard text for everyone I suppose. You don't need to get state records, unless your visa officer specifically asks you to.

    US-based applicants, let's connect here

    I know that feeling. We had to wait for 2 months to get ECA and IELTS done and that's when the scores started dropping to 415 -425. And we were just hoping the trend continued till we were able to get our profile in. The time we got the ITA, it was up to 448 and we just made it. Not to mention...

    Approved Online Visitor Visa: Passport Return Times

    My original visa office was Ottawa. I mailed them asking if the visa office can be changed to NYC since I live 1 hr away from NYC and I could drop and pickup the passport myself. I wasn't very comfortable mailing my passport. This was what I requested and they replied in 3 days with instructions...
