  • When payment is made and Customs has been cleared, goods can cross the border

Customs Clearance Process at Canada Border

  • Carrier must file E-Manifest with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) at least 2 hours prior to arrival 
  • Carrier provides commercial documents, Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS) barcode, Port of Crossing, and ETA at the border to a licensed customs broker for pre-arrival processing
  • Carrier has 30 days to cross the border after Pre-Arrival Processing is accepted, otherwise the entry goes “stale” in their system
