Entering US with B1 VISA

Recommended Posts

I have a Canada WP and i am currently in India. Also i have a US B1 VISA.

My company wanted me to travel to US for transition (Reqs gathering) using my B1 visa for 4 weeks and then I will be going to CANADA office working for long term.

My CANADA WP is valid till Sep 2014;  Out of the below 2 options which one is risk free.
1. Travel to US from India with my B1 and then enter CANADA
2. Travel to CANADA, immigrate into CANADA and then travel to US..

I heard someone saying that if you are traveling to US from CANADA, the US immigrations will be over in CANADA itself.

 

Can someone please suggest an optimal option.

Thanks..

No entry strategy is risk free.

 

Since you will be traveling with much luggage, IMO, you are best served by getting settled in Canada before attempting entry into the US. This also reinforces the perception that you will not be remaining in the US long.

You enter through any route into US then your immigration will be at POE in US.
