I landed in Calgary Last June 2009, come back to US after completing landing formalities at the calgary air port. I am have my PR card with me and I am planning to go there somewhere next year August 2011 and settle down there.

My question is regarding the goods that I can take when going there. Should I carry only the item that I listed when I landed there first time ? Will that list still valid and checked again at the time entering border ? Will I be submitting a new list since I have been out of the country for more than a year ? I plan to drive and drive a new vehicle which was not included in list of item at the time of landing. Will this be a problem ?

Thanks in Advance

Hi

You can bring in the Items you have listed in your original Goods to Follow list in any number of times without any taxes (I doubt whether there is a time limit for this). However you cannot get in any high value items (Example: Car) that was not listed in the GTF list. If you own it (6+ months, I think), you can import but with Duty...

Hello Second_angle,

I am not able to answer your question, but I would like to know did you use AVR (automatic visa revalidation) to land in Calgary airport and fly back to US?

Thanks.

I didn't do AVR, by visa was still good ( not expire at the time of entry and coming out of Canada).

There is no time limit on GTF to be imported. Although you can't add anything to the list.
