Default Experts: Currently Canadian PR, Applying for US Visa

Hi All,

Just got my Canadian PR about a month ago. I am planning to go to the US for holiday therefore need to apply for a US Visa.

What are the chances of me getting one?

I remember reading one of the post stating that the US Immigration usually do not grant visa to Canadian PRs holders that is less than 6 months? Is it true?

Thanks.

Slim to none, the US has a tendency to refuse new immigrants apply for US visitor visa. But you won't know until try.

Just to add to Phil's comment.

You also will need to prove that you are well established in Canada - permanent job, payroll record, etc.... - even after being here for 6 months since landing.

If you just landed few weeks ago then as Phil said - your chances are next to none.

If you are a student probably they will give you a visa.
