Customs questions anyone?



July 21st 2010

The idea of starting this blog came to me after trying to figure out something to do in my spare time that would help people, educate myself, and enter the online world.
I realized that over the years, in my line of work I have amassed a lot of information or knowledge of how to obtain the information in regards to Customs related topics.
Such topics would include:

Commercial Importing
Personal Importations
Vehicle Importation
Personal Exemptions
International Travel
Duties and Taxes
Some basic Immigration knowledge as well

However, I didn’t know where to begin.

I don’t want to just start writing blogs on different subjects…rather I would like to open up my blog to the general public and ask “is there anything you would like to know? Do you have any questions related to Customs?”

I am happy to answer questions in regards to the customs process that is available to the public. Most of the time the information is public….just not always easily found. Many people complain that the Canada Border Services Agency website www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca is horrible to navigate, and I couldn’t agree more. However, faced with redesigning the website I would have no idea where to begin. So who am I to judge? I just know there are a lot of people out there who need answers and are just not getting them…

So thats where I come in.

I will endeavour to answer all your questions the best that I can…with the disclaimer that I can only provide what I know or the public has access to. Think of me as a navigator…

So without further ado…

ask me a question.
