Moving To Puerto Rico From Canada – Your Guide To The Process

Puerto Rico has sunny weather and a unique culture that’s quite distinct from Canada, but most people still speak English, and it’s technically part of the United States, so you won’t experience that much culture shock.

But how do you move to Puerto Rico from Canada? What visa do you need? How can your personal items be sent to the island? Find out in this quick guide now.

How Do I Get A Visa Or Permit To Move To Puerto Rico?

Though Puerto Rico is not a U.S. state, it’s still part of the United States as an “unincorporated territory.” This means that you do not need a Puerto Rican visa, but a United States visa and immigration permit. Typically, you can get a US visa for work, if you’re starting a business, if you’re a student, or if you are moving to the US to be with a family member who is a resident or citizen.

Canadians typically have an easy time getting US immigration permits, due to the close relationship between the two countries. To see your options in further detail, you can look at this webpage from the U.S. Department of State.

Can I Ship My Household Goods To Puerto Rico From Canada?

Yes. When you move to Puerto Rico, you can bring your household goods and personal items with you duty-free as long as you own them and have used them for at least a year. Items owned for less than a year will be subject to duties and taxes. The most common way to send your items is by ocean freight, but air freight may also be used in some cases.

Ocean freight is the cheapest way to ship your household goods to Puerto Rico when you move, but can take several weeks or longer. Air freight is much more expensive, but you can ship your items in just a few days.

Can I Bring A Car To Puerto Rico From Canada?

Yes. Both Puerto Rico and Canada drive on the same side of the road (the right side), and cars that are approved by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) can be imported to Puerto Rico from Canada. However, you will have to pay an excise tax.

Typically, this tax is at least 5% of the total value of the car, so this can be quite expensive. However, it still may be worth bringing your car from Canada if you already own a car you like, because cars are much more expensive to buy in PR than they are in the United States, and the selection of cars for sale is usually more limited.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
