Contraband can also include trying to bring in too much money, jewelry or an excessive amount of just about anything. If you look suspicious they will see it in your face and pull you over for a more thorough search. These people are trained to read body language and they have dogs to help them with the drugs part.

oh ok I read somewhere they look at the shot records and other things

My fiance was just approved from Ghana and the physician who did his exam told him that he does need his medical exam results for the port of entry, so I would have them accessible if this is true.

My wife entered on March 10th at JFK. Oddly enough, I was the only U.S. citizen on the flight, and I guess there were no other international flights arriving at that time because we were the only ones in the line for U.S. citizens. My passport was stamped, then my son's passport was stamped (dual citizenship), then my wife's was stamped. We were then escorted to a room where a woman took my wife's fingerprints, looked at the packet we gave her, changed "CR-1" to "IR-1" in the paperwork and on my wife's visa in her passport, and then let us go. The process took about 5 minutes.

From there we collected our suitcases (6 of them), and went through customs, who looked at our passports, and then waved us through without the slightest interest.

It was quick and easy...unlike the previous 11 months of this visa process.

My point of entry experience was easier than when I've gone through as a tourist. Entering through San Fran, the whole process took 10 minutes maximum. I entered the new immigrant line. The 3 guys were all dealin with folk, so I stood there with my little brown package whilst my nerves grew and grew. I was called over by one of the officers who was dealing with the general crowds, think he saw my package and thought it would be a change from the norm. He seemed a little disappointed when I was a K1 LOl. Anyway, he opened my paperwork, gave me my X-ray cd, stuck the paperwork on a shelf on his desk, reminded me I had 90 days to marry, said congratulations and that was it. 15 minutes later, I had my bags and was in the car on the way to my new life.

I remember there was one case on here of a K1 that had a marriage ceremony after visa approval and before POE, and somehow the officers found the photo album in her lugage and denied her entry on the basis that her visa is not valid anymore.... but it's very rare to be denied entry when on a immigration visa, unless you are really stupid and bring drugs or something.

They can deny you if for some reason your visa/passport is not valid, if you have illegal drugs, if you lie on your immigration forms. You can be delayed/denied if the brown envelope is opened.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

You've replied to an old thread so the beneficiary is probably already here.

There is a Canadian VJ member who was denied entry. The Consulate approved his visa but the CBP revoked it at the Port of Entry. Here's his story:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/230871-denied-at-poe/page__view__findpost__p__3530867

Interesting and informative. That OP, according to his timeline, filed an I-130 just this January.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
