ARRIVAL IN CANADA - CUSTOMS
When you arrive in Canada, you will be greeted by an officer of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The CBSA is responsible for protecting the borders and points of entry to Canada. For more information about the CBSA click here.
The officer will ask to see your passport and/or travel documents. Make sure that you have them with you, and that they are not packed in your luggage. This will speed up your entry to Canada.
Even if you do not need a visa to enter Canada, the officer will ask you a few questions. The officer will confirm that you meet the requirements for admission to Canada. This should only take a few minutes.
The officer will stamp your passport or let you know how long you can stay in Canada. The period is usually six months. In some cases, the officer may limit this period to cover only the intended purpose of your visit. Ask questions if you are unsure about anything.
For current entry requirements and visa information be sure to visit the Canada Immigration website for more information.
