Dear all, I entered Canada as a Visitor before. Shorty to say, I applied my Work Permit inland and received it by mail without leaving & re-entering Canada.

Since I entered Canada as a Visitor before, I didn't delcare any goods to follow. With my newest Work Permit status and I already in Canada, am I still eligile to have my first duty-free shipment from my home country to Canada now?

Thanks so much.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this.

According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Border Information Service, there is absolutely no time limit on when you can bring in your items listed on your Goods to Follow form.

As long as they were specifically listed on your Goods to Follow form, they can be imported at any time.

You can read more about the Goods to Follow process on our Settlement.Org article.


We hope that other users will be able to share their experiences with you in the meantime.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to post them to the discussion forum here.
