No sir I am afraid you are wrong. Maybe in the past it was only cash. Now it is cash and any money instruments. Why take a risk ?

I state this because I read the online documentation available (Two years ago) and they all stated that It had to be declared, and a Canadian customs form be signed stamped etc. The customs people also stated the same thing. Cash/cheque, no difference.

And I agree with the gentleman who said, more than one drink to celebrate ! Definitely called for !

I am not trying to be argumentative, just passing on my own personal experience.

I believe Goomph is right. Any money being exported/imported if it is on paper, cash, cheques, bonds, whatever, and if over $10,000 (I beleive that is the limit) must first be declared when leaving Canada (on the Canadian side), and must also be declared when enetering USA. You also must declare monies coming into Canada, which doesn't apply in this case.

No need if it is paid electronically, wire transfer, credit card, etc...

I bought a car in the US before and took a cheque with me, just like you're planning on doing. I didn't declare it before leaving Canada. The US agent asked why I going to the US, I told her, then she asked how I was paying for the car and asked to see the Cheque. She asked me if I declared it before leaving, I said no, but she let me have the cheque back anyway and let me go. I thought for a moment that she was not going to give me the cheque back.

I don't know all the specific rules in place, but why take a chance? Go in to Canada customs on the way out and let them know. OR set up a wire transfer instead.

I thought you had to stop at the US customs as you leave for them to complete the export paperwork.

That is only for self propelled vehicles. Cars, motor homes etc ....Trailers are exempt from that rule.

When we imported a TT in 2007, I stated the purpose of our trip at US Customs when we crossed. They asked how we were paying which was by bank draft and they didn't care to see it. We wire transferred on our purchase in 2010.

There's no harm to covering this issue with US Customs when entering if they ask. I only answer what they ask.

I guess it's not surprising that they're checking what money is crossing the border along with checking your dog food!

Thanks Dave.... Think I'll leave the dog at home. :>)

I expect they want to know if you are taking money across because then they can check to see if you reported the import later. Just guessing here.

Regarding the import/export of money over $10,000, here is a PDF explaining things from the Canadian government:

One more question.... About RIV inspection

When CTC does this inspection is it paid for as part of the fee I submitted to RIV or is it an additional cost to the purchaser - IE me.....

Thanks.

BTW folks - about cash/cheques over the border...

When we got to Windsor we parked at the Duty Free store then walked through the fence to the customs office. Told the officer there that we had been advised to report that we were taking a cheque for over $10,000 across the border.

She said that was correct and proceeded to fill out a form. We were also told by CSBC to report to the US officials on the other side as well.

A newer procedure apparently.

Yes the RIV fee is for the inspection by CTC or other!
