When a new immigrant first time arrives to Canada, he is supposed to present a list
of goods he is bringing with, and the goods to follow, to the customs office.

I like to know how long will the "Goods To Follow List" be expired after the list
been stamped by custom officer? 1 year? 5 years? or unlimited?

Thank you.

I'm not an expert, but my understanding is that there is no time limit for the
stamped "goods to follow list".

There are a variety of answers to this question, which you may find in this
newsgroup's archives (at www.google.com or www.deja.com).

You are generally allowed 1 year in which you take the items on your goods-to-follow
list to Canada.

Mr. Cohen:

Where to check this regulation? I have tried to surf the web site of Revenue Canada
but could not find it.

At the same time, it should be noted that as more time goes by, the harder it can be
to prove that the goods you are importing are the same goods mentioned on the "goods
to follow" list. A requirement for the duty free entry of settler's effects is that
the goods must have been in the settler's ownership, possession, and use at the time
he immigrated.

A person who lists "5 piece bedroom set", on his goods to follow list, but who waits
seven years before importing a bedroom set will have to explain why it took seven
years, and prove to the customs officer's satisfaction that he really did own,
possess and use this set at the time he immigrated. They'll want to make sure that
the importer didn't just list a bedroom set without really having one, and then go
and buy one later to try and import free of duties and taxes. Be as descriptive as
possible on the "goods to follow" list and keep receipts.

There is no time limit on bringing the 'goods to follow' into Canada.
