Hi friends, I am here to share my landing experience
. I started my journey on 20th June, 2011 to Toronto. Landed Safely in Toronto Pearson Int'l Airport -Terminal 1 on 21st June, 2011. Reached by 1:30PM instead of 11:30AM. My flight delayed 2 hours due to turbulent weather & air traffic in bombay airport. Rest is cool. After landing;1st counter -
Customs [Embarkation Form/ Decclaration card was given in the flight before 1 hour of landing]. I have shown him my passport and embarakation card. He just cross checked and returned everything. He advised me to go to the new immigrants counter. 2nd counter -
New immigrants counter. The officer is cool here. He checked my passport, landing papers, and cross checked with 3-4 basic questions and asked about my wife. I travelled alone first. I said my will join me in next month. He just checked my money and asked my local address. After taking the address and all, he crossed my visa with pen he gave me the last copy of our landing papers. This is very important. He said Welcome to Canada. That's all.3rd counter -
Just information brochures. She asked me where you are going. I said Brampton. She gave me specific information about Brampton and canada new comers info books. 4th is Luggage -
You need to have 2$ cchange here to take trolley. If you call porter he will ask you 10$ for 3-4 bags. I have 5$ notes. I put my 5$ note in the machine. It returned 3$ coins change and 1 trolley. I put my baggage in the trolley and went to the last counter.5th CBSA -
This is the cross border and baggage checking counter. He asked me about anything like goods follow. I said NO. But i gave him my B4 and Declaration form if you are carrying more than 10000 $ you need to declare in E677 form. I did that. He just cross checked all and gave me a copy for my ref and receipt. That's all. I am free to go....
My brother is waiting there, so after coming out i kept my luggage in car and i kept the trolley in the trolley row again, i got 25 cents back from the machine out of my 2$.
