The keep a record of all entries to the US. If you entered on a visa, then if you needed to return your visa or check-out before leaving the country then they have a record of it. Hope this helps.

If you remember the US Visit system, that does keep track of when you enter and exit the US. (Not sure if Canadians have to use US Visit or not)

If your total overstay was less than 180 days you will not have to worry about a ban or wavier. But remember overstay is cumulative.

If it comes up in the interview, just answer thier questions honestly.

I believe on one form that you bring to the interview with you there is a field for you to write how many times you were in USA and for how long. So you should state it there :) They will wanna know the explanation :)

They're only concerned with overstays of 180 days and longer so I wouldn't worry too much, Parinita. (I believe you'll find a reference to the 180 days on the AOS instruction sheet.) Just be honest. Honesty at its worst will get you a waiver. Lying at its worst will get you a lifetime ban.

Actually they are concerned about all overstays but they won't consider the ban until you've reached 180 days. Krikit, you are right about MTL not being terribly concerned about short overstays. I overheard the beneficiary in the next booth with the overstay problem and the CO stated to her, "we're not really concerned if you've overstayed once for less than 6 mos." Honesty is the best policy Parinita, good luck!!!! :thumbs:

They really don't track the comings and goings of Canadians, per se. I guess if you were the sole occupant of a Canadian vehicle they could get a pretty good idea of when you came and when you left. Or if they stamped your passport at the airport. But that's only if you flew internationally. If you crossed the border and flew domestically they wouldn't stamp your passport. There really is no hard and fast proof (that I know of) of whether you took day or week or monthly trips. Did they give you anything to document your overstay, or did they even notice?

Just to add to what Krikit has posted, they wouldn't unless they have given you some documentation. What were the circumstances? Please be honest with them at the interview. I got upset that Mom was refused entry since I believed that it would cause some problem with her IV but when we went to MTL they didn't care.
