Default Getting the right paperwork from CBSA for drivers licence

Hi Everyone, We need to swap our english drivers licence for the Alberta one, but at the airport they didn't give us a document that actually said on it Visa.
We are here on the Parent/grandparent supervisa, we showed the paperwork at the airport and we came through, but they must have omitted to give us the Visa document, the vehicle licensing place won't swap our licence until we have something with VISA written on it, So? The Flagpole? we go to the border with the papers we have and they will give us the document with VISA written on it? or should we go to the airport? we are in Okotoks.

I moved your post to a thread of it's own as it had nothing to do with the subject of the thread you posted to. It's always better to start your own thread so that any answers you get are aimed at your question and not somebody else's.



As to your question, this has come up a couple of times. What you need is a visitor record.

You cannot obtain this from an airport - there are no CBSA processing offices on the 'land' side, so you will need to go to the border. If you do a search of the forum, you should find details on what to say.
