Not sure which sub forum to post this in. If this is the wrong one, I apologize.
I'll try to make this is as brief as I can.
I was refused entry into the US this morning from Canada. This was based on that I was in the US from beginning of October until end of February. I explained to the officer/agent (?) that I was not working in the US. I was unemployed and decided to take some time off and go hang out with a good friend of mine in California and stay at his place. I was not working in any way.
I was going back to the US this time because my friend will be going to Brazil for a few months for work. Will not get a chance to see him for a while so was going to hang out for a few days.
Agent told me I would not be allowed to travel today. She also told me that my situation was "not that bad". (Whatever that means). When I asked how long I would not be able to travel for and whatever other questions I had, she explained to me that an agent was coming to get me to bring me through the airport and would explain everything to me.
Someone came for me, but it was an airline representative, not a US customs agent, and could not answer my questions. By the time I realized it wasn't a Customs agent, I was already through the airport and could not go back to US Customs to get more info.
I went to the US Customs office that was in another part of the airport to attempt to get some answers, but it's closed until tomorrow.
I will speak with someone tomorrow but wanted to try to get some info.
A few other bits of info.
-I didn't have a return ticket. This is because I wasn't sure if I was going to spend the first night if the upcoming Jewish holiday at a friend's place in California or come home for it. Either way, I was coming home around the 19th or 20th of April. I also find I always save a bit of money by not booking return flight home right away.
-I have no criminal record anywhere.
Thanks in advance!
