Canadian border crossing

Canadian citizens have several options to cross the United States border without obtaining a visa. Canadians visiting the U.S. for a short time are allowed to stay up to 6 months without needing a visa. Many border-crossing programs are available to make it easy and quick for Canadian citizens and landed immigrants to cross the border.

Snowbird Visa

The term “Snowbird visa” is not officially used. This is a term that refers to Canadians who split their time between Canada and the U.S. Canadians often spend winter in warmer areas of the U.S. and then return to Canada to enjoy the summer. Permanent Residents or Canadian citizens can obtain a green card to allow them to remain in the U.S. for life. The majority of Canadians who become permanent residents in the U.S. are close relatives to U.S. citizens. A spouse or child is considered a close relative. Employment is another common way to get permanent residence in the U.S.
Students, temporary visitors, and workers with non-immigrant visas may also be allowed to apply for a Social Security Number. The Social Security card in the United States is an important document. It is a document that entitles individuals to certain benefits after retirement. Employers, banks, schools, and the USCIS all use it as an identification card. Social Security is complex and linked to many private and government databases.
