Bringing Camera and Computer into Canada

Jump to last reply

I'm planning on bringing a high-end digital camera and lens, along with my laptop, into T.O. for an upcoming trip. (I'm a semi-pro photographer.)

Do I need to register them with customs before I enter Canada, or before I return to US? Can't I just verbally declare them?

It's been almost 20 years since I've been over the border and don't remember us ever registering items before crossing.

If I need to file a "Certificate of Registration," how long ahead do I need to do that? Where do I need to go? What's the process?

This "simple" 4-day trip is starting to seem like more trouble than it's worth. I'm starting to get discouraged because I really want to visit. Any and all advice is greatly appreaciated!

P.S. I'm a AAA member.

Thanks again!
