Port of Entry Review
Event Date
Port of Entry : CDN-USA Border
POE Date : 2008-06-28 Submit Review
Got EAD Stamp : No
Biometrics Taken : No
Harassment Level : 0
Comments : The officer at the POE was questioning as to why we would risk coming on a w/end, explained when we received the approved visa (June 16th) and then when I was done work (June 23rd), the time that it took for Jim to drive from California, he understood - we think he was just testing us. He didn't check the U-Haul, was very friendly and joking around, excellent service. We just so happened to show up at the border when only 4 cars were infront of us and no line up at the counter, took a total of about 45 mins! We've never been so happy!

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
