It was very quick and easy. The secondary room does both admissions and baggage review or something like that. I was in there for maybe 25-30 minutes. I was asked two questions, first by the officer who asked if my family was in the USA. Then he brought me to the secondary room and I sat down. I was then asked for my packet. I was then called up, given my passport and informed that it was valid for only one year and I should receive my actual card soon. She also mentioned if I ever had to leave the US, and it was going to be a year or longer - that I would have to apply for a travel document. In the end very easy which was amazing!!!

Very easy process. We arrived at the airport three hours before our flight. I had to check in at the desk because I was flying with a pet in the cabin. Took a couple of minutes at baggage check since we had to wait for the woman at oversized. No lines at security so we breezed through there.

At customs I tried to put my visa entrance on the computer and it told me that it couldn’t be processed that way. Staff were very helpful and sent me to the line I needed to be in (which happened to be significantly shorter than the standard processing line). One person in front of me, and then I was up. Border agent was very friendly; he only wanted my passport and my documentation for my cat (who he confirmed to be in good health). He then escorted me to secondary, where I had no wait and spoke to a second agent. I handed my immigration package off to him, which he opened. He asked me when we were getting married, what I did for work in Canada, and confirmed I knew the K1 was a single entry. Passport stamped, and we were done.

Total time between entering the airport and standing at the entrance to duty free was 37 minutes.

10am arrival-
Was sent to a special line for Visa holders. There were only 5 ppl in front of me. Got to the window in about 3 min and told the BP officer I was entering with a K1. He took my finger prints and photo, collected my documents and walked me to secondary screening.
There were three booths there with agents and three ppl waiting in the room for inspection. I waited about 7 minutes and was called to the window. I tried to spy what was in my yellow packet but the only thing I did see was my fiancé's letter of intent.
They did not ask me for any other documentation. The agent simply asked me when the wedding was, stamped my passport and sent me off.
Took about 15 minutes max.

This morning I had my POE at Toronto Int'l airport (YYZ) and it was the EASIEST thing about this process. I highly recommend YYZ if your traveling through Terminal 1. Terminal 3 is a madhouse and super disorganized.

I got to the airport around 4:20am (8:05am flight) and it was busy, but I got through security no problem. I do have NEXUS so that makes the process easier. If you don't have NEXUS, I'd recommend getting to the airport early….

The first officer I spoke with was really nice. He took my sealed package, passport, boarding pass, and took my fingerprints. He kept on joking with me saying"are you sure you don't want to open this? Come on just open this". I was like "NO WAY I waited to long for this!!" He walked me to secondary and gave my documentation to another officer.

I was lucky that I only had one family in front of me at secondary, I probably walked for 5 minutes. The second officer called me up and asked a few basic questions, and we talked about how many K1 visas they process here (its a lot). Within 2-3 minutes I was done, no additional documentation was required.

Goodluck to all!!

We had no idea that we would be processed in Toronto, as we were just passing through from the UK on the way to Phoenix. But after the initial surprise, we were dismayed to be taken into a room and told to wait. We were waiting two hours, not knowing why, while others in the room were slowly processed by two officers who did not appear to be concerned by the growing number of folks waiting. Eventually we were called to the counter and given our passports after the usual warnings and questions. We were lucky to have arrived at the airport with 4 hours to spare before the flight because after all the queuing and waiting we were close to departure time when we got the gate.

Although we were not mistreated directly, officials were friendly enough, there was no communication about why we were being held, and no information about how long we would be held for.

Then when we got to the gate we were treated to the spectacle of a fat guy in civilian clothes bursting through the gate agents towards the plane, and when he was challenged by the gate attendant, he turned around and shouted "I AM US CUSTOMS -- I CAN GO WHERE I PLEASE!" apparently failing to realise that Canada was not a State of the Union! Then he revealed his hidden US Customs badge from under his straining shirt and lumbered on. Trump would be proud!

All in all, not a happy experience...
