Sorry for the cross-post.

Question for those working in the US: When landing in Canada (Vancouver) but intending to come right back to the US, I know that you can leave a friend/relative's address for the PR card. But my concern is the US side. We have our Advance Parole documents (meaning our adj of status is in process), but as we never know when we'll get our US green cards, we'd like to land in Canada (our Canada immigrant visas expire in Oct).

Anybody out there in the same boat? Did the US have a problem with it?

Thanks.

You can't Canada requires you to reside 2 years in every 5 year period, US says you can't leave for more than 6 months. Read http://www.visalaw.com/95mar/3march.html

I guess you can stay in Windsor, ON and work in Detriot, MI. You can maintain both I guess. Maintain a residence in Detroit also if possible.

PMM is the right person to confirm this.

Thanks
