Default Goods to follow and pics for landing

This may be a really dumb question but I am up to my eyes in the Goods to Follow List for our landing in October and someone asked if we need to put the cats on it - that stumped me somewhat! When the time comes we will be using a pet relocation company.

We are coming back to the UK for another 2 1/2 years, so I am hoping they won't want the list when we land as we are using international movers and they do it, but thought I'd better check.

Also

How many pics to we need when we land?

Thanks!

I asked the same question about our dog on the canada forum and was told he needed his own visa, medical and police check HA HA. So I guess from the reponse I got the answer is no. We aren't putting him on ours, and i don't think its a daft question as i also asked it!! When and where are you landing on oct as we are also!

Thanks for that daisychain.

We are landing at Vancouver at the start of October half-term. Seems a lot of people are taking half-term as an opportunity to land. What about you?

I agonised over the goods to follow list. When I got to the appropriate stage which is after you have been issued with your PR they weren't particularly interested. I put down golf clubs, snowboard etc.....and the guy said are you not bringing anything significant sir like a car??? My list was a waste of time

Pets is an interesting one!!!

Dont put cats, dogs or anything live on your goods to follow list. You will have to take that list to Customs to clear your goods when they arrive, they will be very interested in any list that has animals listed on it. Also if you conatiner gets pulled for inspection at POE the first thing they do is ask the movers for a copy of the goods to follow list, what do you think would happen if they saw animals listed? Yes you guessed it, open it up and tear it apart to find them.

Another tip. If you are bringing a Christmas tree make sure it is clearly labelled as plastic or artifical. Dont list OXO cubes, Bisto, Knor stock cubes - another sure fire way to get a conatiner opened - all at your expense.

A complete aside, but are you allowed to bring in unopened oxo cubes and bisto best in the glass jars - unopened? We have been investigating but haven't yet found a definitive answer.

Yes, and I've been wondering about Marmite.

The last thing us "newbies" want to do is fall foul of immigration when we've only just arrived. I personally can't see any reason why they would not be allowed into the country. After all, as I understand it you can buy the same items off the shelf of a specialist English foods shop; just a lot more expensive.

I think it is more the 'unopened' status that they will want to verify. Perhaps pack all that in a separate box and have the packers know that 'box 12' has to be just inside the door of the container? Depends on how wilco your movers are?

Does this suggest that it is OK to import Bisto if it is unopened? If it is legally acceptable then "yahoo". During our 4 month sortie - God did I miss gravy!

The problem with Canada is, Customs are inconsistant in what they allow in. What you need to consider is that if they see OXO, Bisto, Marmite or similar things on the packing list it may cause them to open the container. They may well let the items in, but you will be charged for them opening the container, delays at the port, will also be charged to you (demorrage) and you run the risk of Item's being damaged. Ask your self if it is worth it for a box of Know cubes or a jar of Bisto?
