Immigration Officers – a close-up view


I recently traveled from USA to Canada during a trip that started as a fun filled vacation trip and changed into a critical business visit.   I have been traveling across several countries around the globe, but I never paused to get a close up view of the official who maintains the full responsibility of managing the flow of travelers into the country.


Till I found myself in a soup

A pair of blue eyes stared at me nonchalantly as I submitted my passport. My reason of the trip “Vacation” did not go too well with my suit and tie which I had to hurriedly put on due to my last minute change of plans. My reason for the visit now actually is:


Monday 3 PM to 3:30 PM –Meeting with a software company to finalize purchase of their software

Entire week sans this time–Vacation


Since I was going to the meeting directly from the airport, the need for the dashing suit and the fascinating tie. On hindsight, I should have tugged hard at it to choke myself for my stupidity


“Vacation”–he drawled as he lazily looked at my photograph with the distaste one attributes to a dead skunk. “Interesting”

At that moment, my phone set off a buzzer and flashed the text ” Awaiting you at Meeting” with a broad grin from my manager. On second thoughts, I can think of better uses for my darned tie

How did I wriggle out of this with my 3 piece suit alive–watch this space!
