Moving from Canada to the U.S.

When moving from Canada to the U.S., it is very important that you have the correct documentation to prevent being charged with fines and duties. Documentation is necessary for household items, pets, alcohol and any vehicles you wish to bring with you. Getting the right documentation should be your first step during moves to the U.S. from Halifax.


If you are moving to the U.S. for a new job, your employer must sponsor you, and you must fill out multiple applications through your employer that will be sent to the Department of Labor and the INS. You will need to stay with the same company throughout the process for attaining your Green Card as switching companies will lead to needing to start the entire process over.


If you want your family to move with you to the U.S., you must file an application to become a citizen. A citizen of the U.S. can petition for a foreign spouse or child to come to the U.S. while your application is being processed. This process is shorter for immediate family, but it can take up to 10 years to get other relatives approved.


When you are moving from Canada to the U.S., it’s important to have the help of a reliable and efficient Halifax moving company that can get your personal items to your new home without problems. Contact Burgess Transfer today if you’re planning a move to the U.S. from Halifax.
