Correct. And if lucky at POE, they wont bother checking the docs, just passport n GC.

When going back to canada, I get more of a hassle going into Canada (not much though) than I do coming back to the USA. Enjoy the trip


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

Do I have to show them my green card at the customs in canada or is that just to get back into the US?

They always ask for both on both sides when I travel. Just as easy to show it than to not.
