My Fiance, a Filipina in Toronto, has an Approved I-129F (it will be Express Mailed to her) and is scheduled to fly home here to Chicago with me on Feb 25th saturday.

My questions.....

-is Toronto's Pearson Airport her POE?

-what documents other than the Passport/Visa will she need to have handy with her?

-i know about the I-94 Entrance Form she needs to fill out at the airport...are there any other forms to fill at the airport?

-and....plz give ur advice on her POE day that I may pass on to her....

Thank you all so much, I have found a WEALTH of valuable knowledge on this site from a bunch of fantastic people!

Love to u all....

First, congratulations! :thumbs:

Second, :time:

And now for your questions :)

- If she flies from Toronto, yes, that will be her POE

- ticket and envelope that will be sent along with her Visa. Do not open the envelope inside the Expresspost envelope

- I don't think so

You will have to go through the USC line at customs, she will go through the regular line. After clearing customs, they will then take her to go through the immigration part of her entry. I confirmed this with customs on my last visit.

Yes, my mistake. She has the Visa in her Passport. A semantical error on my part.

You will have to go through the USC line at customs, she will go through the regular line. After clearing customs, they will then take her to go through the immigration part of her entry. I confirmed this with customs on my last visit.

When my then fiancee and I arrived in Miami last June, we both went through the non-USC line so that I could be with her through the whole process.

A small point of clarification, the first officer that you will see is a Border Patrol agent. Customs agents come next when you get your bags checked.
