Hello!
I live in Canada having open work permit status. I am planning to apply for PR but apparently my past might affect me. I overstayed my visa for less than 6 moths in US and left the country ON MY OWN. After I got a student visa in Canada and then open work permit for 3 years. Now i am looking through the applications I need to fill out for PR in Canada. And there are questions if i overstayed any visas or being rejected in visas in ANY OTHER countries. I don't know what I should reply: should I omit the fact that I have ever been in the states or I should tell the truth? If i tell the truth will it affect my application for PR in Canada? If i omit the fact that I was in the states will Canadian officer be able to find out that i overstayed my visa in America?
I know that many people who overstayed their status in the states somehow got their PR and citizenship in Canada. Please advise. Your feedback is much appreciated!
Thank you!
