Hi All, I just wanted to share my recent landing experience. I got my PPR on the 3rd April and sent off documents the next day. I then got my CoPR the following week and drove from Toronto to Kingston that Saturday as my IEC visa was due to run out on the Sunday. My friends and I left Toronto at 6am and were at the bridge by 9am. There wasn't a queue and we drove through to the American side, we told them that I was activating my visa. Upon doing so the agent gave me a paper refusing entry into the states and we were directed back to the Canadian border. They did make us wait to collect our passports but that literally lasted two minutes. Once I got to see a border agent on the Canadian side the whole process only took an additional 15 minutes. They were really polite and the whole process took about 25 minutes. Why I went to Thousand Island Bridge? After reading countless threads in this forum, flagpoling at the Niagara bridges on the weekend is risky as a few people have been refused and generally those bridges tend to be busier. What I took with me (a CEC inland applicant from the UK): The two CoPR copies Passport Permanent residency letter that comes with your CoPR My IEC visa Now the wait for my PR card begins. I hope this helps anyone who is considering flagpoling in the near future.
