Declare Everything at the Border

declare-everything-at-the-border

If you are returning or coming into Canada for whatever reason you will receive a Canada Border Services Agency Declaration Card to complete before you land. If you are in need of such a document it would recommended that you seek immigration assistance before attempting to travel.

Be Honest of What You Declare at the Border

If you are not honest while declaring at CBSA you face having all goods seized. You may lose the goods permanently or have to pay a fee in order to get them back, this depends on what type of goods you have and the circumstances involved.

Foods, Plants,  Animals and Related Items

Every traveller coming into Canada plays a key role in protecting our agriculture. Many travellers are unaware that there is a threat posed when you do not declare what you’re bringing into the country. The risks are very real and are able to threaten our environment and natural resources.

Public Health

If you are suffering a communicable disease please be sure to let CBSA know. With all the different strains popping up around the globe it’s wise to advise the border officials if you have contracted anything while outside Canada.

Remember…Declare, Declare, Declare and be honest! If you are travelling into the country using a vehicle the declaration is usually made by simply speaking to a Border Official at the time of entry.

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !! I was very impressed at how well they were organized and had a positive experience. Very good and professional work led to a successful outcome. I highly recommend using VisaPlace.
