Urgent - Landing - Proof of Funds

Canada Immigration Forum (discussion group)

Subject: Urgent - Landing - Proof of Funds
  Hello Everyone,

I have just got my PR visa stamping done on my passport. I have enough funds to transfer to Canada from my home country & I have proof of this in Bank statements from my home country & the US.

However, in the US, I only have $2,000 worth in my bank & $6,000 in cash. I know that for a single individual immigrant --- the funds required are totally $10,000.

The questions are:

1. Can I land with just a total of $8,000 in the above mentioned combination or would I have to show $10,000 proof of funds from the US bank & cash when I land? I am planning to do my landing in a friend´s car, so I will not be flying in from my home country.

2. Also, I know that taking more than $10,000 outside the US by cash is not allowed. So how does one take this amount to land?

Please clarify & your genuine advice will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your responses!

Different ways to take money: demand draft, money order, traveler´s cheques, etc. You can even use your US bank statements if your money is easily transferable to Canada.
