You can. BUT, if you aren´t from any visa waiver country then need to have the tourist visa from US consulate.

Looks like you are from India, so will need US visa.

have to make online appointment, visa interview..

Serbian is not visa waiver. You will need a visa to enter U.S., even though you have a Canadian PR card.

Samir,

You need to make the online visa appoinment. This is tricky, you have to try many times to have the date. If serious then start the process, depending on your residence you´ll be given the consulate. Depending on consulate you have to make the reservation at least 30/45 5days before.

speedoflight - be careful of your advice.


Depending on the passport you carry, you may need a visa in order to enter the United States. The United States does not view Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residence in the same way. The American authorities will treat you as a Citizen of the country whose passport you are carrying. Be sure to check out this requirement several months before you want to travel: American visas often take weeks or months to arrange.

Sharon is correct. Speedo, don´t be too naive with such serious issues. You can´t afford to go to the US border with family and come back.

US also didn´t care for visa for the commonwealth counrty citizens till March, 2003. After that, as a by product of 911 they impose visa for all non visa waived countries.

The current US visa waived countries are:

Andorra Iceland Norway
Australia Ireland Portugal
Austria Italy San Marino
Belgium Japan Singapore
Brunei Liechtenstein Slovenia
Denmark Luxembourg Spain
Finland Monaco Sweden
France the Netherlands Switzerland
Germany New Zealand United Kingdom
