astro08 Posted May 21, 2020 Share Posted May 21, 2020 Hi! I was wondering if any knowledgable person in here might be able to advise me in light of the current situation. I am a dual Mexican-Canadian citizen about to start a master's program in the US this fall. I initially thought about applying with a Mexican passport, since I've been living in Mexico for a few years and was a little worried about having proof of ties to Canada. (while I haven't lived there in about five years, I visit very often and have family all around). Anyhow, I was going to apply with a Mexican passport; sadly, the office that processes passports here in Mexico has been closed for the last couple of months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so I don't actually have a Mexican passport. I haven't had one for a few years and was only going to get one to be on the safe side when processing my F-1 visa since I've been living in Mexico for the last few years, and I did not want to raise any eyebrows when entering the US. So, this puts me in a difficult position since, as of now, I cant actually get a Mexican passport, and I don't know when I will be able to. While I have lots of family in Canada, my mom and my stepdad, which are helping to finance my degree are both Mexican nationals and live here in Mexico city. I asked the school about all of this, but they really did not give a concise answer. I am growing worried, and I'm starting to wonder if it would be a stretch to fly to Canada and then enter from there. I have a bank account over there, a registered address, and close family ties. I may wait a bit more to see how the situation evolves, but I am trying to weigh all my options. So yes, I would really appreciate any good advice on how to proceed. Thank you so much!!
