Hi everyone,

I had a question or two for someone in the same situation as me to find out how they managed and did things.

I have a business in Canada as Sole, now moving to US with my K1 what do I do? I need to run my business that means I need to do work. I'm a web designer so computer is all I need. If I don't work for three months or however long it takes to get SSN or Work permit, I will lose everything I've worked for, over 10 years worth.

Anyone have a suggestion what to do? Maybe from someone who went throught this too?

Also, regarding the move. Does POE check your moving truck ? I have computers, software, etc... That few websites state I will pay duty or taxes on any electronic I bring. So how do you bring a computer or two? What about tv? DVD? Playstation etc...?

Any help and suggestion on both will be very appreciated

I'll leave the business question for someone else to answer.

As for your TV, computers etc, these are your personal items and will not incur duty. Anything that you have personally owned for a year or more can be imported duty free, for up to 10 years.

Hi Trailmix,

Do you know if I have to write down the serial numbers and manufactures name of all the electronics items, as its stated in one of the guides here on VJ?? I just don't want to be stopped at the POE or be returned back because of it. I have made a list that states, box 1 - computer items, box 2 - Coffee makers, radio, etc... is that good enough ?
