Residents of Canada are required to declare to the Customs Officer at port of landing in Canada all articles purchased or obtained abroad whether as gifts or otherwise. Failure to declare goods leaves same liable to seizure.

Tourists’ Outfits - Temporary Admission. Persons visiting Canada for a limited period of time, for health or pleasure, may bring with them such articles of tourists’ outfits or sportsmen’s equipment as they may require while in Canada for their own use and not for gain or hire, upon reporting same to the Customs Officer at the Canadian frontier port of entry, subject to departmental regulations.

Through Baggage. Passengers en route to destinations outside of Canada may have their checked baggage forwarded “In Bond” to a frontier port under Customs Manifest without examination of same by a Customs Officer.

Samples (such as carried by commercial travelers) are required to be delivered to the Customs Officer for entry purpose, and invoice or statement in detail showing the price—wholesale—of each sample as sold for home consumption. Such invoice or statement should be attested to by the traveler.

Settlers' Effects. Free, if actually in use for six months before removal to Canada but are required to be produced upon landing to Customs Officer for examination and entry.

United States Customs Inspectors are located at Canadian Atlantic Ports; but they are not permitted to collect duties; therefore, in order to avoid complications and payment of duties to the Canadian Customs, citizens of the United States returning from Europe should pack all new goods purchased or otherwise acquired abroad in one or more receptacles which may be checked to destination and forwarded in bond.

All checked baggage not containing dutiable articles, or new goods in excess of the exemption to which the owners may be entitled, will be examined and passed by the United States Customs Inspectors, and will not be subject to re-examination at the United States frontier or at destination.

Baggage checked to destinations in the United States is not examined by the Canadian Customs.

Baggage carried by passengers by hand, which should not contain dutiable articles, will be examined by the Canadian Customs at the landing port, and by the United States Customs Inspectors on the train at the United States border.

Passengers destined to the United States will be issued by the Purser on the voyage a form of United States Customs Baggage Declaration, which must be completed in duplicate and presented to the United States Customs Inspector at the time of Customs examination. All values must be shown in United States currency.

Returning residents of the United States must declare all articles acquired abroad, in their baggage or on their persons, whether by purchase, by gift or otherwise, and whether dutiable or free of duty. Exemption, however, will be allowed by Customs Officers of articles aggregating not over $100 in value, if suitable for personal or household use or as souvenirs or curios, and whether intended for the personal use of the passengers or as gifts or presents to others, provided the articles are not bought on commission for another person nor intended for sale.

Articles so exempt from duty must, nevertheless, be declared. Each member of the family is entitled to the exemption of $100 for articles purchased abroad, and when a husband and wife and minor and dependent children are travelling together the articles included within such exemption may be grouped and allowance made without regard to which member they belong.

Non-residents of the United States destined to that country must declare all articles in their baggage or on their persons which do not constitute wearing apparel, articles of personal adornment, toilet articles or similar personal effects, whether intended for their personal use or for others.

They must also declare all articles of wearing apparel, jewelry and other articles of personal adornment, toilet articles and similar effects when not owned by them, or when intended for other persons or for sale.

Professional books, implements, instruments and tools of trade, occupation or employment, in the actual possession of persons emigrating to the United States, owned and used by them abroad, are admitted free of duty.
