Canadian Retiree Visa stalled

February 08, 2013 - 7 comments

FYI has confirmed that the Canadian Retiree Visa provision contained in the Jobs Originated Through Launching Travel (“JOLT”) Act proposed by NY Senator Chuck Schumer stalled in the committee stage and was not approved before the end of the 2011-2012 session of Congress.

The provision would have permitted Canadian snowbirds who met various qualifying conditions to stay in the U.S. for up to eight months. Absent the visa, the current six-month limit will continue.

Canadian Snowbird Association (CSA) executive director Michael Mackenzie said Schumer has committed to reintroducing the measure in the current session.

We are so disappointed that this did not pass. Hopefully it can be reintroduced by senator Schumer.
