Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I read an article online that was published by the Star which stated some information of which I was unaware and am wondering if you could clarify. We are aware that we can stay for up to 182 days out of a year. What I was unaware of is it also states […]

Dear Bird Talk, We understand that there is a limit of 182 days for Ontario residents to be in the states per year.

More than 182 days in the US?

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Inadvertently, I have done something really stupid. I made an honest mistake muddling up my days spent in the U.S. for 2013 and only now realize that I was in the U.S. for more than my allotted 182 days…by six days (188). Am I the first idiot to have ever done this? […]

He claims that this is […]

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I have been given an exit date of March 8, 2015, even though it is far fewer than 182 days for my stay in the U.S. The agent would not tell me why. Is there a way to get this visit extended to April 15? Even though I have never overstayed in […]
