Guys please answers accordingly with simple answers and answer them confidently. DO NOT CONFUSE THE VO BY EXPLAINING different things.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE W2, PAYSTUBS, LCA and the paystubs should be consistence. Also pay can be more than or equal to LCA. Make sure the pay is highlighted in the bank stmts.

======================================================================

ALSO WHEN YOUR ARE COMING TO CANADA, TELL THE CUSTOMS YOU ARE COMING FOR VISA STAMPING AND SHOW THEM YOUR APPOINTMENT LETTER. Please DONOT mention 150days in the custom form, as they will have more questions for you to ask.

JUST MENTION 7 to 10 days.
