I went for landing at 1000 islands bridge crossing, and i want to share my experience. It was nice experience, officers on both sides were helpful, polite and quick at their work.
Both sides i was greeted with smiling faces and casual conversations, USA officials took 10 minutes, and canadian side 15 minutes. No waiting no queues , just avoid rush hours to avoid traffic at bridge. Afternoon is good time or night. I recommend this POE to everyone avoid Niagara and Sarnia . Drive time to kingston is worth it. Thanks.

Yeah it is basically same. questions they ask are same too, they ask my work and adress in canada and previous USA visits details. I guess they match our answers with ones we have filed while applying for usa visa. I remember 1st question they asked purpose of visit, 2nd where i live in canada, how long i have been here, when did i visited india last, 3rd question where do i work . And officer wrote all these details on a white paper attached to yellow paper which we re supposed to hand over to officer at canadian side of border.

I think theres nothing to worry. Those who have us visa they have already submitted photo and prints to us border. May be just for security purpose they record the visitor’s prints
