Yes bring along any evidence that you have a bonafide marriage/relationship.

It is not advised to book your ticket until you have visa in hand in case the visa is held up for whatever reason.


You can find me on FBI

I recieved my visa the next day after 2pm. Then left for the US 4 days after. My interview at the consulate was a breeze. Didnt bring any proof of our relationship. But hey, you cant go wrong if you bring them.

Better to have some evidence just in case. I brought a few pics, letters, plane tickets,but MTL never asked to see any of them. And Better to wait on booking your ticket. Never know what could go wrong, Murphys law tends to point it ugly head from tiem to time!! Computers may go down,etc etc! Staff there are great. Do a search here and you wil find a lot of info regarding the MTL embassy, hotels, what not to bring, etc etc Best of luck


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
