I have got immigrant visa and planning to land in Toronto in the near future. I have the following queries and would appreciate if you could answer them for me:

1) What happens exactly after post landing at Pearson International Airport in Toronto?

2) Does the post landing formalities happen 24 hours a day or Is there any specific time duration during which post landing formalities happen at the airport? What if a person arrives during evening or night time at the airport?

3) How much time does post landing formalities take?

Hi



I have got immigrant visa and planning to land in Toronto in the near future. I have the following queries and would appreciate if you could answer them for me:

1) What happens exactly after post landing at Pearson International Airport in Toronto?

2) Does the post landing formalities happen 24 hours a day or Is there any specific time duration during which post landing formalities happen at the airport? What if a person arrives during evening or night time at the airport?

3) How much time does post landing formalities take?




1. You tell Customs Primary examination that you are here to "land". They will refer you to Immigration secondary. Depend on what category you are "landing" in, you will need your passport, COPR, Proof of funds, and B4 & B4A Goods accompanying and Goods to follow. You will be asked if your family composition has changed, whether you have any criminal records. You will need a Canadian address for your PR card to be mailed to.
2. Immigration/Customs at International airports are open whenever an International flight arrives.
3. Depends on how many people are referred to Immigration. If it is a slow time, 20 minutes, if busy 2/3 hours.

Thanks PMM for your reply. I have one more question:

1) Where can I find B4 and B4A Goods accompanying and goods to follow forms.
