But I can see an A1 is possible but did not think it came with work authorisation.

However it does come with Diplomatic Immunity of some sort.

How would he be paid?
Should be able to rule out the H1b, I don’t think he went to university, and his role is not listed:

He seems to be work authorised so H and L are out.

A1 would seem to apply if he was a dependent? That seems to get work authorisation.

That does not seem to fit, unless the Queen asked him to do everything he is doing out here for her government?

To qualify for an A-1 or A-2 visa, you must be traveling to the United States on behalf of your national government to engage solely in official activities for that government.”

The more I look at it the less likely an A would apply.

I reckon he has a spousal visa. They stayed in Canada until the visa was through.

I go with you on this, JG. As they are celebrities, I'm sure that they bypassed the normal wait time for the Immediate Relative Visa (CR-1 in his case as they were married less than 2 years). He will be eligible to apply for naturalization in 2 years or so since he has been here since last 2020.

Pretty terrible reporting to no even look at the basics of a visa before suggesting it.

I think asylum can be ruled out because he has since traveled back to the UK multiple times.

Would the Royals even be considered a “social group”?

My guess is it’s not a usual status, and maybe something granted by executive order or by some other alternate process.


“Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

I think so too. Would have been easy to have applied from the UK when they made their minds up about leaving, and just waited out the process in Canada.

The one thing that backs this up is the comment about being cut off financially by the Royals, that could have been the way they avoid all the tax exposure with him becoming US tax resident.

Although that would directly contradict:

A royal source said: "The Duke has not made an application for dual citizenship, and I don't think he will apply for a green card at any point."

Unless they are being clever with words because he already has a green card, so he has no need to apply for one.

The Express is no better than the National Enquirer. How on earth can they speculate about whether or not Haz has made an application for US citizenship…when he is not yet eligible to do so?

Their US tax returns should be interesting.

A green card seems to be the only “normal” status that would allow him to have multiple paid roles / jobs legally:

Apparently it came from a Royal source, also reported by other venues:

I can’t remember if the renouncing of titles was only at US citizenship or part of the GC as well?

It is when obtaining US citizenship. USC’s are not entitled to use titles, therefore I cannot see him applying to become a USC anytime soon. Although she is still trying to milk her title for all she can get out of it. If some reports are correct, sometime in the future, there may be a President Duchess of Sussex.

assuming he flies commercial, which immigration line he uses may also give clue, unless they have a VIP suite like at LHR they could send him though..
