Transportation of personal effects to Canada

Personal effects cannot be sent via LCL shipping from Ukraine. Therefore, if you have for instance 300 kg (without furniture) it is worth to use airfreight services

Before you send personal effects to Canada, you should prepare two copies of a list of all the goods you intend to bring as part of your personal effects. The packing list should indicate the name, value, quantity, model and serial number (where applicable) of all the goods. One copy will follow the cargo and the other you should bring to the Customs. The total value of all your items shall not exceed 10000 CDN.
