Driving a car to the US and keeping it there

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

my fiancé and I have been approved for our fiancé visa and we are going to be moving her to the US next week! We are going to be driving her car from Canada to the US and keeping it here so that she can have her car here with her to use. What do we need to have at the boarder to ensure that we will be fine when crossing. We already have the letter from the manufacturer. We were told there was more than just the letter that we needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you!

It is fully paid for and does have Tpms sensors

You already got the manufacture letter. 

The officers at the border will check the VIN and you fill a couple of forms.

Once done, they will stamp it and you take that to a DMV to register.

Some states need a Level 2 inspection with the DOT and a emission test to register.
