Okay, I'm pretty sure that US and Canada border agencies share information. I know there was a movement in US (after 9/11 of course) where they felt that Canadian border enforcement was weak and so they wanted to improve the sharing of info between the border agencies. Both Canada and US government have the "right" to know when people enter and exit their borders, so there is no law in either country that would prevent the sharing of the info.

Secondly, obviously it is all computerized and has little to do with the stamps on the passport.

So I would strongly assume that both countries know your coming and going in both directions.

I would recommend that while still in the US that you contact an immigration lawyer there, and then have them help you contact the US CBP to declare that you overstayed. I think that then you'd end up paying a fine or something. You'd probably still have some sort of flag on your record, but it would still be better than having some CBP trying to grill you based on knowing you're lying. Anyway, the immigration lawyer could advise you on all of this (i.e. the implication to further applications, etc.) Basically, I'm saying you should square up with the US authorities before trying to proceed with further immigration steps.

The leaving through Mexico may be worth a try, since obviously computer databases can be pretty dumb and US government may not share info it gets from Mexico with Canada. But it might, as again there is no reason they wouldn't.

Swapping means,applying for new Canadian when my old expired.

Unless you changed your name and date of birth, we will know. As far as the Canadian side goes, they don't care, you are Canadian, thats all that matters to them on entry. As far as coming back to the USA, you may get caught, or you may not..........only time will tell.

P.S. Thanks for breaking our laws.

Yes, we are evil. We spend billions of dollars and sacrifice thousands of lives to keep shitbags like you safe. We happen to be the biggest reason that no other countries F**k with Canadians. We may not have the best reputation in the world, but unlike you, we can form a coherent sentence.

Overstay How do they know

Post Fri Feb 20, 2015 5:16 am

I am not sure of your situation but I was told by our immigration lawyer that the likelihood of my in-laws getting a visitor visa is not good. My in-laws dont have a lot of money, or jobs, or property in their names and since their son is an LPR they would be to likely to overstay their visa. We were told that if we want them to visit the best route would be to wait until my hubby goes for his citizenship and them apply for an immigrate visa for them.

So before they spend money applying or a visitor visa I would like look into it more.
