Pets must be accompanied by the owner and a certification by a licensed U.S. or Canadian veterinarian proving that the animal has received a rabies vaccination. The certificate must indicate the expiration date of the vaccine and the type of vaccine used. Service animals and kittens and puppies younger than three months are exempt from the rabies certification requirement but may still be inspected by border officials and barred from entry if they do not appear healthy.

Visitors must also declare amounts of Canadian currency exceeding $10,000. Gifts valued at less than $60 Canadian dollars are permitted, but visitors must pay additional taxes on gifts with values over this amount. Additional restrictions apply to food, pets, firearms, fireworks, vehicles and some consumer items such as baby walkers. Some items such as plants, vegetables, honey, dairy products and meats are generally never allowed or require special authorization. Handguns, mace, pepper spray and explosives are also generally prohibited.
