Landing Documentation

Here’s the list of documents required for landing :).

1. Valid Passports with visas 🙂

2. CPR – Confirmation of Permanent Residence document(IMM 5292B)

3. Proof of funds

4. Goods accompanying list and forms B4 and/or B4A.

How to get the B4 documentation done?

In short,

  • Once your packing list is ready, group ALL items in it into 8 categories.
  • List out each category items in a separate sheet in an Excel document as |S.no|Item Description|Quantity|Value in CAD
  • Enter approximate values for your used goods like clothes, kitchen items etc., and Total each sheet separately
  • For the Jewellery items, pictures have to be attached.
  • It’s better to have original invoices for very costly items like diamond jewellery
  • Download this form and fill it.
  • Enter each category in a line and key in the total amount for ALL categories in CAD below.
  • Key in the PA’s name in the name field
  • Key in your Canadian address for the ‘Importer’s Address’
  • Key in your home country for the country of export
  • Fill the other details out and at the bottom of the Page-2, Sign, Date [the day of Landing] & Location [write your Landing POE’s name].

Make 2 copies of this entire set, one for the customs officer and the other is your copy. Do not forget to get your copy stamped at the customs :).

    Hi Indira,

    Congratulations. I see your posts in canadavisa.com. Welcome to Toronto. I landed here last year and settled down well now. Hope you are in IT which helps in getting job earlier here.

    1. Indira

      Thanks 🙂 Nope, both of us are not into IT 🙂

    Hi, Indiraji,

    tell me is it mandatory to show SOF – (CAD 10,000) at Landing ?

    please reply asap.

    1. Indira

      That’s POF ;). Yes, it’s mandatory to carry the proof of funds while landing, but they occasionally check the same. Believe me, it’s not worth taking a risk at this stage. Please carry the exact required POF while landing.

    Hi, Indiraji,
    Thanks a lot for your prompt reply.

    I have also some confusions regarding landing procedure.

    How we get IMM 5292B(CRP)? During lading they will provide???????????or with passport delhi office will send.

    You have written in yr blog just completed the form B4 and B4A before landing and Once your packing list is ready, group ALL items in it into 8 categories.

    Which 8 categories?????? please give me form B4 and B4A.

    and also tell, jewellary which we wear during travelling that also included in that list with invoice or pic.

      NDVO will send you the COPR forms for ALL the family members with visas.

      About the B4, I think I’m very clear on the explanations, I suggest you read the post again. You have to group ALL your items you are carrying into categories such as electronics, clothing, kitchen items etc.,

      The link to the B4 forms are already there in the post.

      Yes, ALL jewellery have to be accounted for, even the smallest of the ones you wear or carry.

    Hi Indira,

    I got my PP with Visa stamped and CPR papers. I need one clarification to be done, is B4 form different from Custom declartion form which is given in plane, before landing. And POF for 2 people can be declared in primary custom declaration form is enough?

    Secondly, you mentioned in this blog we need to have 2 copies for the entire set of docs, so are you sure will they stamp even our copy? or just the required papers which they feel like stamping is important.

    Please advice… thanks for your help.
