Bringing My Personal Belongings With Me by Car - Documentation Needed?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I plan to return to Canada at some point after I arrive in the US to bring my belongings. I will do this with my vehicle and a U-Haul. There will be a few items of furniture and about 30 small boxes of goods that are mainly books, DVDs, personal items, household items, a bike, microscope and a few other things. Plus all of my work gear which includes chainsaws.

My question is, how much detail to I have to document all this stuff? And is there anything special I need with respect to my vehicle (a 1998 Jeep Cherokee. I will of course have my relevant visa and passport as well.

And perhaps an odd question - I have discovered I cannot ship goods to the US by mail in wine or liquor boxes. Will this be a problem with the boxes in the UHaul? I assume not but just checking.

Anything else I hould know? I assume I should have laptop and drives available since I bet they want to check those out too.

TN visa, hopefully. That's why I will fly down first and return later to get my stuff.

VJ deal mostly with relationship visas, which are a lot different than work visas. You may want to try http://www.canuckabroad.com/forums/canadians-in-the-usa-vf4.html

Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
