Hi everyone,

I will be leaving Hamilton Ont, tomorrow morning for my 8:30 a.m. interview in Montreal on Monday. I get nervous just thinking about it. I will be staying at the hotel Le centre ville (or something like that) for Sunday and Monday night. After the interview (whatever will be will be) I am going to take in some sites. Good luck to me and I will be back to give you'll the load down (I have been hanging around my u.s. husband alot. I think I am even picking up his southern drall. I know my sister is. Instinctive, she, all of a sudden, has a u.s. accent the minute she talks to him on the phone. It must be contagious).

Have a great weekend everyone.

Best of luck!!

Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
