Hi, Please excuse me if this question has been asked already... I am planning to do a soft landing in about a month. Since I am planning to stay a week and return to my original location, don't have much luggage with me. Looking at CIC website.. I have got few questions and appreciate anyone can guide me on this. 1. Health Insurance - Do I have take temporary insurance cover for the stay I will be in Canada|? 2. Bank Account - Do I have to book any prior appointment in case to open a bank account? Any suggestions on the bank where opening an account for immigrants is easy? Looking in internet, I see most of the bank offer free account only for 9 months. Considering I am doing soft landing does it add any value to open a bank account now? 3. Customs Declaration Card - Is this similar to Landing card and would get one in the flight? 4. BSF186, Personal Effects Accounting Documents - I am not bringing anything from the list mentioned below under 'do have to pay duty on' items. Is this mandatory to submit if I don't have any items to list? "A duty is a fee that the government charges on some goods when they enter Canada. You don’t have to pay duty on: books linens clothes jewellery antiques furniture silverware musical instruments gifts worth CDN $60 or less each hobby tools and other hobby items private collections of coins, stamps or art appliances, such as a stove or refrigerator You do have to pay duty on: farm equipment equipment you plan to use in: contracting construction manufacturing vehicles you plan to use for business items you have bought on your way to Canada items you have leased or rented we don’t consider leased or rented items things that you own If you’re not sure if you have to pay duty on some items, bring sales receipts and registration documents with you.
