POE'ing This Thursday!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Well, the time has finally come! I'm activating my K-1 visa this coming Thursday. Any words of wisdom for my POE through Newark? I've read a couple of reviews but the newest one is from April. I'm not at all nervous really...just want to make sure I got everything covered.

I'm flying direct from St. John's to Newark and then eventually on to Houston. I have a 3 hour connection.

Thanks! :)

No USA pre-clearance in St Johns??


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

Good question! Not that I know of. :wacko:

I've read tons of reviews about Newark and POE's, including a few that had people flying from St. John's to Newark. Hopefully I don't run into any issues....
