The one issue I can see is that you are married to someone who is living in the US and who has a green card and they are not sponsoring you. Whilst not illegal that will raise questions about your intentions. I am not sure what options are available to you to go there as a spouse, i would like to th...

1) I dont think there is a Quota on the number of 'winners' from any one country. Its more about region. i think Africa gets the most winners but i think they also supply the most applicants as well. I believe though there is a cap on the number of green cards actually issued to winners from any one...

You could look at going as a Skilled Worker (points system) either through the Federal route or the provincial nominee, or even the Quebec sysem. the only drawback is that it takes a loooooooooong time to complete.

you should be able to apply whilst you are in the UK as long as you maintain legal status i guess. For Canada i suppose the govt website should be your starting point. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/index.asp not sure what your qualifications and experience is like but you may want to look i...

Have a look also at http://forums.immigration.com/ for the different routes.

If you have a masters degree then it may easier to go to Canada based on their 'points system'

If i remember correctly on the forms you complete for the visa one of the questions is about the whereabouts of your immediate family whi...

How long after you turned 18 did you actually leave? Also how long ago is this? The way i understand it, minors do not accrue illegal presence until the day they turn 18. So apparantely the clock starts ticking when they turn 18. Whereas adults would be be banned as follows Overstay for less than 18...

in that case its hard to see how your father can pass it onto you. not sure about the mother route as she was born outside UK. it might very well be that you may need to go the ancestry visa route.

maybe the expects here will add their comments

You may want to investigate your father's naturalisation. Did he live in the UK at any time? If your dad was naturalised in the UK before you were born then it probably means he is 'British otherwise than by descent' meaning he may pass this on to you.

so you may already have British citizenship

As a spouse of a British citizen she does not need to meet the 1year ILR requirement. She can apply once she has been in the country for at leastt 3years as long as she has ILR.

So in my opinion Feb 2012

Re: Declare Criminal record that I don't have or not?

Why are you applying for the visa? Do you know that you cannot use the VWP? If so why? I dont think the OP stated their nationality all they said is that they are on Tier 1 and wife is on Post Study. @chidol4u, What information did you put in your application to support your case that you have ties...

I don’t think you will be able travel to US, if you have UK tier 1 visa and as said by nionlight it is true the chances of getting visa to US from UK is also very less, surely they will ask you to apply from your country of citizenship. I have seen many peoples in UK who are suffering to get visa...
