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

I woulda been waiting around the time that he would be flying out. So i'm sure he got on the plane with visa in hand just like me :D. I too had a problem with my medical docs from the Saskatoon Doc and managed to get my visa after the doc faxed the proper docs on the same day - kinda touch and go though :wacko: I'll post later when i get off work about my experience.

Taaa daaa! We are back safe and sound in Ohio. :P

He called shortly after I left the office to make my drive to Hamilton, ON to pick him up. They actually had his visa by 1:30 p.m. and he took a cab to the airport to catch his flight. His flight arrived at 12:45 a.m. this morning. We drove to Brantford and got a hotel for a few hours of rest. We got up morning and drove to the Windsor/Detroit crossing. Of course, I stopped in Windsor and hit the slot machines and came out 75 cents ahead. LOL! The border crossing was a breeze. We were there about an hour and everybody there was really nice. There was some drama going on while we were there so it made the wait a little easier. The customs officer that assisted us was so nice and helpful. Darcy got his EAD stamp at the crossing. We were then on our merry way after that.

Sorry it took so long to post!
