Default Got visas/Landing help please

Hello

I live and work in the USA.I got Canadian immigration visas yesterday and they expire in June.
I'm planning to go for one or two days and then come back so I don't loose the visas until I finalize everything here in the US.
Can some one answer the following question for me
1. Can I drive my USA titled car back and forth?
2. Can I stay for one day and come back?
3. If I give them a friend's physical address in Canada,can they mail me my PR cards and then he can mail them to me in the USA?
4. Do I have to show the bank statement at the port of entry?
5.Can I stay in a hotel when I go there?


Thank you for the help

CBSA rules state that PRs are only allowed to drive to their place of residence and the border. (rarely enforced if you are only going to be in Canada a couple of days. Don't forget about importing your car as goods to follow.

2. Can I stay for one day and come back?

Yes

3. If I give them a friend's physical address in Canada,can they mail me my PR cards and then he can mail them to me in the USA?

Yes, better to use a courier.

4. Do I have to show the bank statement at the port of entry?

Yes, you need to show proof of funds.

5.Can I stay in a hotel when I go there?

No, has to be an igloo.



Thank you for the help

Thank you for the help,I really appreciate it.What do you mean it's better to use a courier?Can't a friend mail me the PR card to the US,may be using DHL?
When I said a hotel,I meant that I have to provide a physical address but if the officer asks me if I'm staying there,should I say yes or no?

Thank you

I guess that if you are staying at your friend's place that would be the address you'd disclose.

Using a courier service like DHL (which I wouldn't touch with a barge-pole after having worked for them way back when) would give your some sort of guarantee that your PR card arrives to your hands instead of disappearing in the mail bags.
