VISA in Hand

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well...it's here, sitting in the Xpresspost envelope beside me. :dance:

I'm ready to go as soon as we have our church blessing at the end of June. The Uhaul is booked; most everything is packed and labelled (thanks to all those who have gone ahead); and I have my VISA. :dance:

Just a quick question though. I look at my VISA and it has the PETN # on it; then it has PET EXP: June 3, 2008; PETR name and my A#.

What does the PET EXP mean? :help:

Thanks,

Dear BH45,

CONGRATS galore!!!!

Yippeeeeeee!!

As for dates and thingies, you have a certain amount of time to use it, up to 6 months, I think, and then after it is activated you have 90 days to get married. And how quickly I have blocked all this shtuff out of my mind. Wow. I used to know it all so well. Ha!

congrats


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

Thanks so much. The first part of our journey is almost complete....then it will be back into paperwork to get the next leg done.

Just out of curiousity, if I hadn't asked for my VISA to be processed say until October, would there have been an issue cause of the PET EXP date?

5 weeks from today, I'll be home :dance:

No, because they automatically extend the expiration date on active cases.
