I just looked up from the website:
Border Information Service (BIS), provides computerized information 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Agents are only available regular business hours, Monday to Friday (08:00 - 16:00 local time/except holidays.
So what is the meaning of agents available? No agent on Sunday means can or cannot do landing? Pls advise.
Immigration officers are always available. Border is 24 hours open. Few of my friends even landed in weekend. If you concerned then just go after 8.00 am. Don't plan to go midnight hahahhaha. If border is open 24 hrs then it mean everytime someone there, and if someone their then they always have stamps handy. if they have stamps handy then they have computer system up running (because if someone from USA coming to Canada that late/early then they have to enter the person into computer and landing is same thing.)

Thanks for advice. As I am not available on weekdays, that's why I want to do it at weekends.

Thx for ur advice indeed. You are the best! No waiting time and really can land on Sunday and the two officers who help me for the doc are nice too.

For the PR card, I try to link but cant successful. Is it due to Sunday or wrong info i put, I just wondered. Is that just input the UCI no. and the info requested will do? I tried few times and still caanot link up. Will try tmr.
Thx again

Does anyone know if Boundary Bay has certain times you are allowed to flag pole or can you go at anytime?

Thanks!

I went on a Saturday around 2 pm and although there was a line up in both sides (between 20-30 cars) I had no wait time since I was a pedestrian. It took me less than 30 minutes to do the whole thing.

Immigration services are provided 24*7days in a week at all land borders. Only one border in Canada not is Niagara Ontario. Boundary Bay Border is the one of the easiest border in BC. it took me 5-10 mins for landing only.
Hi
Is it just a walk-in at Boundary Bay Border or do I require any appointment ? And also when you arrived did you first check with Canada border officers or just directly went into US border? Can we go any weekday?
Please answer these as I am going next week. Thank you

Just drive or walk straight to the US side officers and tell them your are here for flag pole. Stepping out from Canadian Side you won’t see any stop by Canadian officers. US side officers will ask your passport COPR papers and stamp your passport last page as flagpole and follow ti further instructions from US officer how to get back to Canadian officers.
