I’m always nervous going through the Border and always relieved when that is past me.
I don’t know why that is because I make certain that I have nothing onboard that I’m not supposed to and I doubly make sure that I have all my papers in order. I don’t screw around with anything when it comes to crossing the Border.
Coming back into Canada they may grill me – but Hey, I’m a Canadian so they HAVE to let me back in.
But going to the States they DON’T HAVE TO let us Canadians across. So we play nice – really, really nice because we so desperately want to escape the COLD and head to the WARMTH !!
Here are just ‘some’ of the questions they asked me. There were a LOT and I can’t remember them all. After the basic questions the guy continued to grill me.
Where do you live ?
Who’s living at your place while you are away ?
Your Aunt rents from you ?
How do you define Winter ?
When were you in the States last ?
When did you return to Canada ?
What Border Crossing did you use ?
Where do you work ?
What Company are you retired from ?
Is your RV paid in full or do you owe money on it ?
Do you have relatives in the States ?
Are you planning on visiting them ?
Do you own property in Arizona ?
Where will you be staying while in Arizona ?
The above are the ones I remember – there were more !!
It felt like I was there an hour but in reality it was likely only 5 minutes – 10 minutes max. I was sure glad when he handed me back my Passport and said “Have a nice day.”
