Hello everyone..........So I am the petioner and I visited my husband in Canada (the benificary) I am in Canada right now with him...I left on Tuesday July 7th........ When the plane was starting to decend I looked out the window and I could see the CN tower, at that point I knew it was time to face the customs officer, I got extremly naseous. So I got my bag got off the plane and walked to customs. When I got to the customs area I went to the line with the female officer.

ME - HELLO

OFFICER- HI, WHERE ARE YOU VISTING FROM?

ME- SAN FRANSISCO

OFFICER- WHERE ARE YOU GOING AND WHO ARE YOU VISITING?

ME- IM VISITING MY HUSBAND AND IN-LAWS, AND I'M VISITING TORONTO.

OFFICER- ARE YOU STAYING WITH THEM?

ME- YES.

OFFICER- OKAY HAVE A NICE TRIP.

ME- THANK YOU.

Sooooo thats my review.......I was soooo nervous prior to my trip I had wrote down 93 days visting on the declaration form........and she didn't say anything about me staying. I had all my ties from home ready to show and she didn't ask to see any of them. And she was super nice. =) I'll be staying here in canada till October 7th. My husband and I will celebrate our 1st anniversary together on Sept. 26th!!! I'm sooo happy =D
