Hi Canadianinlove!Canadianinlove said:Just a quick update on me
Hubby had an interview this morning for his US Visa so we could do and see his mom who is visiting his sister in NYC. He got denied by the US Consulate.
We aren't really upset because we kind of expected them not to issue him a visa because at the same time we were also handing back his greencard. I think the IO was a little annoyed that my husband did not want to live in the US and only wanted to visit. lol
We will apply again but probably in a couple of years.
Next vacation for us is sweet TNT - although Canada has been hotter than Trinidad this summer!
My husband was just approved for his Canadian PR and is currently a green card holder living in the USA. Just curious if it's necessary to give back the green card? If so, how do you go about doing it? I assumed it would just expire and that would be the end of it. I guess if you want to visit and get a visa like you did you would have to give up the green card first. I'm a little surprised your husband wasn't approved to visit the USA since he had been eligible to live and work there prior to giving back the green card. I am not however surprised by the attitude he got about giving it up. The last time I went to visit my husband in the States I was hassled by USA immigration as they were worried I would stay with my husband illegally. So I explained that my husband had applied for Canadian PR so we had no plans of living in the US and the officer said he couldn't understand why a US PR would ever give that up to become a Canadian PR. He acted like it was an insult to him personally and the US!
