Moving belongings to the US - Help!

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright so, got my passport with my visa issued and now preparing for the next steps as in packing up!

 

I just need some advice/suggestions when it comes to my things.

I'm going to be flying solo to the states on the 21st of Nov; taking 2 suitcases with me with my things that I'll need to be moved right away as well as a carry on, the rest of my stuff will be (or at least currently planning on) driven by my family who are going to come down for just a weekend 22-24.

 

Firstly, do ya'll think this is a good idea? Just because I want to save money as much as possible (planning a wedding here!) and the fact that my family are willing to drive my stuff is great.

I'm just concerned about some things such as will my family need a copy of my visa/papers and maybe a manifest of all the things they are bringing for me in case the agents ask for them? Will my family need to bring something such as ties to Canada to reassure the agents that my family really are just delivering my stuff? I don't want my family getting stuck..

Otherwise, I'll just save them the trip and come back when I'm able to again to move my items myself.

 

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated!

😂😂 I think yeah, might be wise for them to be able to demonstrate the belongings are yours and that they are going home to Canada after dropping it off.. would hate for boarder control to think its them moving and not you 🤣

Yes they will need the form for unaccompanied goods and a manifest of the items

Thank you so much, do you know what that form is called or where I would find it?

On the CBP website search for unaccompanied goods moving to the USA.
