Hello,

Sorry, I landed at rainbow bridge.
I walked over to the US border. At the rainbow bridge, there is a pedestrian walkway. Just follow that pedestrian walkway. As mentioned in my earlier post, No US visa is needed. You state that you want to flagpole, then you get administrative refusal from US border service agent.

Then, come back to the Canadian side. The wait at the Canadian side takes 2 hours plus- I don't know why. The landing process takes a long time according to the border agent I spoke to. You have to be prepared to wait for sometime, perhaps all day.

If you decide to drive through, the border agents will advise you on where you need to park your vehicle on both sides.

Same here! Changed in process in aug n still nothing.. I think the office just got extremely slow or something.
Taking longer then what ppl have said. Been now like 5 weeks n still nothing from the office.

Hello Samji, I saw your name and thought it's PPR for you.cauz we have almost the same timeline.
Yes I did order notes for the second time.for the first time I ordered them by end of May, and got them by end of June.though it's hard to understand their technical codes, but you end by having an idea of which level is your file arriving.
I wish they could understand how,this waiting is stressfull, they could do something for us.sometimes I can't event do much at work.
anyway let's hope for the best.maybe this month will leave us with a good news.

I can understand your frustration. I'm May applicant and I'm already frustrated as you guys are. I thought tz office will speed things up forward and it's election year i expected immigration will be faster than previous year. I have email my visa office, called cic and called my MP office no respond . But we all hoping for the best. lets be wait and seee.
