Tills Visa Law

Stephen K. Tills, Attorney at LAW

Canadian Snowbirds ~ New Law ~ 2012

Proposed new law would ease the process for Canadians vacationing in the U.S.
Under current law, without a visa, Canadian citizens are not permitted to remain in the United States for longer than 180 days. Many Canadians would remain in the United States for a longer period of time during periods when Canadian weather is still cold if they had a legal ability to do so. In addition, Canadians who currently return to Canada after 180 days are unable to take day-trips across the border to northern-border-states in America.

The bill, known as the JOLT ACT would allow Canadians who are:
1) over age 50 (with derivative benefits to a spouse and minor children);
2) who can show that they own a residence in the United States or have purchased rental or hotel accommodations in the United States for the duration of their stay; and
3) are not otherwise inadmissible – to stay at least 240 days per year. These Canadians are not permitted to have work authorization for this visa or access to any government benefits.
