Hello everyone

My second IEC visa is late by two weeks, and despite emailing them numerous times I haven't heard off them and my current visa expires on Monday :(

I'm really scared about going to the border and flag poling, I want to come back into Canada as a visitor and wait for my visa to come through, it surely can't be much longer, but I don't know if this is an option or whether they will refuse me entry.

I have never had an issue before with getting an IEC visa, they've always come with plenty of time to spare and so I assumed it would be the same this year. I didn't apply to change my status to a visitor 30 days before my visa expired as I thought I would get my visa on time like usual. So i'm worried the border officials might give me a hard time.

I am a UK citizen, I have paper work to show that I have applied for my visa and that I am waiting for it, but I don't know if this will be enough. I'm not on an implied status as the IEC is processed by the Canadian embassy in the UK.

I dont really know wha to do, I don't want to get stuck at the driving border in Montana.

Has anyone been in this situation or does anyone have any advice?

Many thanks in advance,

Naomi

I'm also waiting for my second Visa. My 31st birthday is coming up on may 31st and I'm waiting for payment accepted passed to CIC. I think showing all your paper work at the border, you'll be fine. Good luck
