Moving with personal belongings in a car- H1B Visa

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I recently had my H1B visa stamped and I'm planning to drive down the border from Canada to the US with my personal belongings. I have nothing major, no furniture. I have a couple of boxes from my kitchen(utensils, small appliances) and about 5 big bags of my clothes and shoes. 

My husband lives in the US. He will be making the drive here to Toronto and I plan to drive back with him in the car with my stuff. 

I did look into Upack but their base size is too much space for the stuff I have. 

 

I have made an itemized list of my stuff with their value in every bag/box. 
I also have the form 3299 filled up for the border. 

 

Is there anything else I need to worry about? Do I need to enter the US to actually move my belongings(have a passport stamp, valid I-94) or I can move my household stuff along with me?

I never even thought about bringing my stuff into the US after getting immigrant visa. Only thing I’ll have is clothes, a dog and a TV. Do I need a 3299 as well? Spousal visa (green card) Driving as well.
