We have also provided links to several Canadian and U.S. government websites so you can review the most up to date information as Customs regulations are occasionally changed or amended.  We recommend you research and familiarize yourself with the entire process so as not to be surprised by anything.

For international moves it is imperative that you have the correct documentation and current identification for each person moving to the new country.  This is essential for the relocation of your belongings.  PODS requires that each individual present a valid passport as it is necessary for PODS to provide a copy of the passport to the immigration officials in the country to which you are moving.  The name on the passport must be consistent with the name on the PODS account as well as the name on the manifest of goods.  Our PODS fleet and PODS® container may be denied entrance to the country should Customs and Immigration officials find any discrepancies.  Keep in mind these policies and procedures have been established by the US and Canadian governments to maintain border security and make certain new immigrants are properly documented to enter the country.

PODS strongly encourages our customers to familiarize themselves with the immigration procedures and requirements of the country to which they are moving.
