    Default Canadian Permanent Resident (Dominican nationality) applying for US Visitor's Visa

    Have any Canadians gone through this process? We'd like to drive from Calgary to Toronto (perhaps Montreal) this summer, and would travel through the US due to time savings (I'm told it cuts up to 12 hours off the journey). In order to do that, we'd need a US Visitor's visa for my husband. Has anyone gone through applying for this? Any success?

    Within 3 months of being in Canada Yris applied for an American Visa at the US Consulate in Vancouver(there is one in Calgary) paid her money and within 4-6 weeks had her American 10 year Visa. I don't know if the process has changed since 9/11, but she was able to download the application from the internet, sent her passport...etc.

    Trina here is the link . They have the application that you can download like Bob said.

    It also states:

    Changes introduced shortly after September 11, 2001 involve extensive and ongoing review of visa issuing practices as they relate to our national security. Visa applications are now subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. So it is important to apply for your visa well in advance of your travel departure date.

    Awesome, thank you very much, all! Hopefully Angel will be able to get his as easy as Yris did.

    If so, Anna, expect some visitors in July!!!

    Default Hope you'll be able to make it in July as well...

    Trina,
    I really hope that you'll be able to get the US visa for Angel so that you can visit Ontario in July. Would love to meet up with all of you!
    Anna - pls do contact me when the time comes. I have been lying low for several reasons - mainly, my health has gone down hill with work related stress!
    Take care
    Helen

    And I hope you'll consider a stop in Montreal on your US-Canadian tour as well. We could meet up at Marlin's or something...

    Jane and Helen, meeting you two would be some of the biggest highlights of our trip. Even if Angel doesn't get the visa, we may still come through Canada, and just not have as much time to visit...I'll have to map it out and see how it goes.

    Helen, I'm sorry to hear about your recent troubles. Drop me a line sometime!

    Default Me too, me too !!!!!!

    Trina,
    I was thinking about your trip last night, and thought to myself if Angel doesn't get his visa, you would then be travelling on the Trans Canada, right?
    Well, we live one hour south of Hwy. 17, just east of Kenora. I know you will be pressed for time, but I would be honoured (if it happened to be time for a stop) for you and your family to be guests at our home. If you find that it doesn't work for you, I would understand. If you need cheap accommodation for one night, how is free work for you !!!!! LOL
    Anyway, closer to the time, maybe we could plan a visit in Kenora on your way through if you didn't want to come down our way, you can still get to Thunder Bay from our highway so it would just offer you a different route.
    Let me know !
    Marlie

    You are so sweet, thank you very much! Sounds like a great offer, we'd love to meet you, but couldn't impose. We'll have to get in touch closer to the time and go from there. How is the Immigration for your spouse coming? Any news?
