At the Border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection requires at least 72 hours (three business days) advance notice before any self-propelled vehicle is permanently exported from the United States. The vehicle must be presented to U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the time of export. U.S. Customs and Border Protection recommends that you contact the border crossing directly to determine all documentation required and the hours of operation.

Canada Border Services Agency

The CBSA will check documentation to ensure you have the required documentation including title, documents, and registration or proof of ownership. You will need to supply the vehicle import form required by your province or territory to license the vehicle. The CBSA will also facilitate the payment of the non-refundable RIV fee.
