I spent last week at Phoenix and Scottsdale AZ, the nightlife sucked ass. Before you seriously consider moving there go and spend a couple of weeks, see how you like it. The weather's great for 9 months out of the year, the other 3 it gets freakishly hot (does your AC work?).

As far as the Visa stuff etc its pretty easy to get, the term is one year, not 6 months. The vital part is finding a skillset that is lacking in the States.

I was at the airport for the first half of the week, in Scottsdale (202, 101 - north a few miles) for the second half. Not many Persians or Italians either.

TN VISA
Geez Rob, what hare-brained scheme have you managed to come up with now?

Guess what buddy, better hope your parents don't renovate your room the minute you move out, because 2 hours after you leave, you'll be back home again.

First of all, a TN Visa is a temporary work Visa for trips to the US. It does NOT allow a person to move to the US. Secondly, you must have a job offer FIRST before they can grant you a Visa, and three, used car salesman doesn't appear on the list.

How do you suppose you're going to get across the border with all your stuff in the trunk of your M3? "Yes Mr Border Guard, I'm taking my TV and VCR with me on a vacation to Arizona..."

Guess what? Without a Visa allowing you to MOVE to the US (such as an H1, L1-A, L1-B et al), they won't let you cross the border. And once you're tagged at the border, they'll be checking you over everytime you attempt to cross.

Without a valid US Visa, you can't get a Social Security number, which means nobody can legally pay you. Sure, you could wash dishes for cash in the local restaurant, but I doubt your new girlfriend would love to spend the rest of her life with an INS fugitive who washes dishes in a nearby greasy spoon.

Secondly, how would you plan on getting an Arizona driver's license, or tags for your car? You don't think the local authorities will notice those Ontario plates and license when they pull you over?

As much as it would create some peace around here to have you in Arizona, this lame-brained scheme of yours is never going to work.

Of course, you could always sneak in illegally....that would be fun to watch. I wonder how many times I'd have to call the INS before they'd finally get you?

If you're desperate, you could always knock up your little Arizona sweetheart, marry her, and then sell your M3 to pay the bills. You'd at least have a chance of getting a green card on marital status anyway....


On the flipside, it's really too bad that the border is largely closed to Canadians without a job offer (and tough even then). It's apparently easier to get into the US by being from a third world country, than it is from Canada.... The hoops I had to jump through to live and work in the US was a major PITA.


Pat

Pat,

It wouldn't create peace...he would bring his damn computer with him. Don't discourage the little guy...use your massive knowledge/experiance to help him!
