Visiting back home!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all hope all is well! My hubby moved on a CR-1 visa in May and he's in Canada visiting right now and he'll be coming back next week. We were wondering is he allowed to move more of his personal things with him, or was that a one time thing when he did his POE? If he can, what would he tell the customs people? and if he can't and he has to bring a little bit, does anyone know the limit (dollar wise) of how much he can bring? Thankyou!

You can take things with you at your first entry and/or have your personal belongings come in after. So yes, your mom can bring things for you. The person at the consulate warned me to be careful who you pick to bring your stuff because *you* are responsible for their contents. (hopefully your mom won't stash illegal drugs in there.. :lol: )

I wonder if my mom can bring some of my stuff without having trouble at the border? (she plans to visit me for the wedding, after i've already entered with my visa)

I was told that someone else can bring stuff over for you. They had to have with them; a copy of my US Visa (the one they put in my Cdf passport) and then make a list on paper of what it is they are bringing in to the US. We've had no problems, you have up to 10 yrs to move your stuff over.
