There is some risk (slight) that she might be denied entry by a zealous border agent. If they have reason to believe that she might not return to Canada, they might not allow her to enter. Their concern is that she is trying to avoid the K-1 fiancee visa process.

But, if she can demonstrate that she has strong ties to Canada, like a full-time job and assets like a car or a house, and the trip is just for the holidays, I doubt that she would have a problem. If it comes up at the customs and border “interview” (really questions by the border agent), she should just say that she intends to be there just for the holidays and return. If she is traveling by air, this should be no problem, since she will have a return ticket for a short time later.

Regardless of whether they marry in Canada or the US, she needs to get a K fiancee visa to enter the US permanently.

I hope this helps.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I'm a 30 yo Indian living in Canada since 2013 and have a 10
I'm a 30 yo Ind***** *****ving in Canada since 2013 and have a 10 yr visitor visa to the US expiring 2019 and a pending greencard application (through my dad who's a citizen since 2015). So far, I've visited the US over 50 times (as I live right on the border and cross over often by land for shopping/visiting places across the border) without any problems and only been denied once (in 2016) when I was trying to visit dad on the opposite coast for 3+ months post my graduation carrying all my stuff with me as I hadn't renewed my lease and had no return ticket, the reason being I wanted to fly home to India for another few months after my US trip before starting a job life in Canada. However, last year, I got a call centre job (my first in Canada) and a rented apartment, and been crossing over to the US several times without issues again.I quit this job in October 2017 to fly back to India for 2-3 months to visit family, attend my nephew's first bday and a few weddings, etc. and later take care of my mom post her hysterectomy surgery that had to be done urgently 2 weeks ago. We were supposed to fly back together in January end to the US to visit my dad after which I would fly back to Canada alone in 3-4 weeks time. I was already skeptical about US immigration denying me entry due to being jobless again and parents being citizen/GC holders in the US but thought that Canadian lease papers, bank statements, recently-received Canadian PR card and accompanying a slightly-handicapped mom would support my case... but now, I have this problem:My apartment lease is dated Apr 1, 2017-Mar 31, 2018.If I flew to the US as planned in Jan, I would be flying to Canada in Feb and still be able to show that my lease is un-expired. However, if I fly to the US in mid-March now and show an intent to return to Canada sometime in April, the officers would have no reason to believe my lease has renewed. All I'll have is a return ticket and Canadian bank statements besides this lease.Will this lease still count as proof of residence even if I'm going to pay month-to-month after the first 12 months? My lease agreement states “If neither Tenant nor Landlord delivers notice of termination of the other, then upon the expiration of the term, the Tenant shall become a monthly tenant only. As a month to month tenant, Tenant agreed to vacate premises upon receiving 60 days written notice from the Landlord.” I'll be paying March rent to my landlord by bank transfer next week.I have ZERO intentions to stay back in the US. It's just that it's impossible to visit my dad for a longer period if I'm working, so this seems like the perfect time to visit him for a month.a) What are my chances of rejection? b) Is there something I can do to help my case? c) Would asking my landlord for another 6 month lease instead of going month-to-month help show PROOF OF RESIDENCE or will this lease be enough? … read more
