Hello,

I am finding the accompanying goods and goods to follow forms very confusing to fill.
For the accompanying goods form, do I need to mention everything I have with me in my suitcases including clothes? If yes, how can I assign a value to these? or should the value in this case be 0 since these are used clothes?
Also for the jewelery values,should I mention the invoice values or the values based on today's gold prices?

Please help as I am finding it almost impossible to fill those forms.

Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and questions with us.

We have some really helpful information on how to complete these forms and what can be included in some of our previous Settlement.Org discussion threads here:

List of goods bringing to Canada

Description of Goods

Jewelry Appraisal

You may also want to contact the Border Information Services directly for specific information and a definitive response. You can contact them here:

Border Information Services (BIS) from outside of Canada (long-distance charges apply):

(204) 983-3500 or (506) 636-5064.

Additionally, you can also find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org I am immigrating to Canada. How do I bring my belongings with me? article.

Here is an excerpt,

If you need more space to list your goods, you can type out your own list or fill out form B4A Personal Effects Accounting Document (list of goods imported) [PDF] .


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
