    You can either specify the organization name, or click “Do Not Know”.

    If you do not have any contact in the U.S., enter the name of the hotel where you will be staying. If you are taking a day trip across the border, enter the name of the shopping mall or store where you will shop.

    Choose from the following choices: 


  • Address and Phone Number of Point of Contact
