Traveling into Canada with Advance Parole document...

Hi everyone,

I am finally coming home to Canada for the first time since moving to the States :dance:

I will be traveling with my 512 Advance Parole document (2 pages). In addition, I'll have my passport with K-1 visa inside and my marriage certificate to show my name change.

Other then these travel documents, is there anything else I need to bring that the border agent may ask for?

Also, how and when do I use my advance parole documents? Do I only offer them if they are asked for? Or do I present them with my passport when I drive up to the booth?

Any help you folks can provide is greatly appreciated!

You present your AP with your passport when you go through the border checkpoint coming back into Canada. Be prepared to be taken into secondary processing while they review the paperwork. Give both sheets. They are to stamp one and give it back to you, and keep the other (sometimes they will give back both copies, so don't be worried if they do). Carrying a copy of your marriage certificate is a good idea as well, if they ask for it.

Have fun on your trip back! :)

thank you!! Your posts are very helpful. I'm glad to learn about being pulled into secondary questioning. I would never have expected that and I'm sure I would have been a nervous wreck if I hadn't known.

It's not a big deal, really. If it's anything like secondary processing at an airport, they're basically pulling you aside so that the rest of the line can get through while they are looking at your documents. :)

Just to clarify the AP is for going back into the US not for coming into Canada. Processing of the AP docs will be at the US border or US pre-clearance if you are travelling via air for your return back to the US.

Yep, thanks for catching that Neiks! I totally meant coming back to the US. Had a brain fart when typing that I guess!
