Please give your opinion? When I first land, what do I have to have with me?
Please give your opinion???

I am planning to land in Canada from the US this winter break (12/15/002 to 01/15/2003). I will only be there for a week. At the port of entry (Calgary), I will give the officer my Uncle’s address in Calgary to mail my PRC card to him. I will leave Canada after landing back to the US. My Uncle will mail me my PRC card whenever he gets it so I can come back to Canada from the US at the end of 2003 after I finish my graduate study. To come back to the states after landing, I do have a valid F1 visa on my passport.
Please let me know?
-Is this a good plan?
-Can you think of any problems I might face?
-Is it okay for my uncle to mail the PRC to me in the US?
-When I first land, what do I have to have with me? (Money and documents, I will be actually moving my stuff at the end of 2003).
-What else do I need to do during that week?

Thank you for your help

Your plan is fine.

Don't forget an inventory of personal possessions (furniture, computer, tv,
etc) you plan to bring with you at the end of 2003 for Customs Canada.

Tim

How much detail is required onthe list of goods to follow? Also, if I am outside of Canada for over a year, does it make a difference?
Can I land and then replace my TV for something better before bringing it across?

Thanks
