Subject: Can I drive my car during Landing?
  Hi Everyone,

I plan to drive my own car into Canada for my landing process and then come back to the USA within 2 or 3 days.

Then after about 1 year, I plan to move permanently to Canada. Will the officials at the Landing Point ask me to import my car even if I tell them that I plan to return back to the USA in 2 or 3 days.

Thank you
AAA

Not sure. But why not import the car right then and there? If the car is to be imported later, at the time of landing you´ll need to provide Customs with a list of goods to come later which should include the car.

I don´t know about this. When we drove across the border with our vehicle to land, they wanted everything for the vehicle to be imported at that time. I´m not sure what would happen if you choose only to land, and then return.

When they fill out Form 1, it is sent to RIV and $209 must be paid at that time. The Form 1 is stamped and sent to RIV who will send you the criteria for changing your vehicle over to being ´Canadianized´. If you land with your vehicle and import at that time, then you will have 60 days i believe to change your vehicle over before you can licence it.
I guess, if you arrive they may expect that the vehicle be imported at that time. They may allow you to land with it and return to the states later, but i´d have all the paper work necessary. They are most worried about people landing with a vehicle..possibly selling it, then returning to the states to buy new(cheaper than here), and then landing with a newer vehicle.

You may run into some problems at customs. So i´d be ready if they ask you for the paperwork. Why not just land later when you plan to live here? You have one year on your visa to land.
