Landing After Arriving By Train In Vancouver BC

Discussion in 'Canadian Experience Class' started by westcoastaccountant, Jun 18, 2019.

  1. Hi everyone!

    I was wondering if anyone has experience doing their landing at Pacific Central Station in Vancouver BC when they arrive by train (Amtrak Cascades) from Seattle/Portland?
    I have family in Seattle so I was wondering if I could come back by train and do my landing at the station? What are the chances CBSA would refuse? Are there any specific days and times they do the landing process at this port of entry?

    If anyone has any success stories with landing like this, please share!:)

    Thanks guys!:)
  2. Why would CBSA refuse? Process is the same as any other POE. Landings are only restricted at particularly busy POEs in Ontario and Quebec.

  4. Hello,

    Thank you for asking this question as I am in a similar boat. I was wondering if you finished your landing via Pacific Central Station and if you can share your experience incl. what you've been asked by US immigration coming back to the united states if you're on an H1B visa like I am. It would really help me to plan my landing.

    Thanks again in advance.
  5. Hi! I didn't do my landing through Pacific Central station. I got a landing interview request and landed at the IRCC office in Vancouver. Which brings me to my next point :) I am not in the US on H1B. I came to Canada on a study permit converted to work permit and then to PR.
    Hope this helps! :)
  6. Thanks for the quick response. :)
  7. @intruder8 I am in similar boat, have you completed your landing? if yes, could you please share your experience. I am thinking of taking train and doing my landing at Pacific central station but not sure if this is possible option?
