Canadian First Nations to work/live in Hawaii (The Jay Treaty)

Rainbow Canadian First Nations to work/live in Hawaii (The Jay Treaty)

Hello there from beautiful Banff, Alberta!

My mother is First Nations and my father is an immigrant Hungarian so I've got a status card identifying myself as First Nations.

My sister took advantage of the Jay Treaty to work in Minnesota many years ago, but I always wanted to live and work in Hawaii, myself. I fear the process is much more complex nowawdays and my head is spinning from the documentation so any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Do I now require a letter identifying my blood heritage in addition to my status card? Must I apply for a specific Visa?

Any guidance or help is greatly appreciated.

Warm regards from the mountains of Canada,

Jim

Aloha Jim and welcome to our forum. Even though we have discussed immigration issues on this forum before, this is a very specific question that you have and I'm afraid I don't know the answer myself. What I would suggest is to consult with an immigration lawyer. Maybe you could also post this question in an immigration forum.

I'm happy to say that I've secured the documentation required for my arrival in the US using the Jay Treaty for First Nations / American Indians.

The organization I work for, Hostelling International, is helping me out with Accommodation in Waikiki, as that's where I'll be working, but I wonder if perhaps there was a lot of student housing situations I could take advantage of (an apartment with 2 or 3 roommates).

I've read about some of the student neighbourhoods around UH, but thought maybe there was a local listing somewhere I could keep an eye on for accommodation opportunities. Is there a website much like Craigslist or what we have here in Canada, Kijiji.ca?

Any guidance with affordable housing in Honolulu, near the University or Waikiki, would be greatly appreciated. : )

I don't know of any public website that lists student housing. But the universities, for example HPU, have their own site where students can post ads for shared rentals. But I think you have to be a student to get access to this site. I also know that there is a bulletin board at UH. Most students who don't stay on campus check craigslist. There is a section in craigslist for shared rentals. Maybe you could check that. Other than that I'm not aware of any affordable housing in Waikiki. Good luck with your move.
