I got B1/B2 US visa for 10 years as a Canadian Permanent Resident. I travelled to US for short trips and never oversatyed or violated rules. After 5 months since visa was granted I recieved a call to come to US consulate and when I came there my visa got cancelled (they put "CANCELLED" stamp on it). I asked what was the reason and they said just that "they have been advised to cancel and I can re-apply". Is there a way to find out why my B1/B2 visa was cancelled and what are my chances to get one if I re-apply? Also, is there going to be any problem for me to get Canadian Citizanship with a "cancelled" US visa in passport?
You should discuss with an attorney whose practice focuses on immigration; use the Avvo find a lawyer tab to find one near you.
Any answer provided by me does not create an attorney client relationship with the author of the question. An attorney client relationship can be formed with me only after a consultation and subsequent execution of a retainer agreement or letter of engagement. Notwithstanding that, the prospective client is afforded the protections of the attorney-client privilege before and during the consultation regardless of whether the retainer agreement or letter of engagement is subsequently signed.
Visas are granted and cancelled at the discretion of immigration officers, perhaps you had too many entries or overstayed at some point or have criminal issues. There is not enough infomation here to fully answer your questions, I suggest you seek the advice of an immigration attorney with all your paperwork in hand.
The reason the Consulate summoned you and canceled your visa is probably because they believe you were engaging in conduct inconsistent with the purpose of the visa. You should talk this over in a private consultation with an attorney. You may have trouble being approved for visas in the future. The effect of the cancellation of your U.S. visa on your chances for Canadian Citizenship would need to be addressed by a Canadian Immigration Attorney.
