5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Am I losing my mind- or did I read that the only place for the CR-1 interview in Canada is in Montreal?? I posted this question on the CR-1 board as well. Can someone please clarify--- flipping out a bit- more stress- more expense.... Thanks in advance !

yep, ALL cr-1, ir-1 done ONLY in Montreal!!

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
