I think a certified cheque would require declaration.
Blank cheques and credit cards would not.
But, since there is no penalty for declaring and there is a penalty for not declaring, I'd declare everything, even my air miles.

They don’t have to be declared as long as it’s made out to ETI that’s what we were told at the border crossing in Suma

Wire transfer done- keeping hope alive

US resident and I Just sent in the paperwork for a $CDN wire transfer to ETI for progress payment on our 21. Keeping hope alive that all will go without a hitch. I found when filling out the Wire Request form that my broker needed an IRC code which was not provided on the email instructions from ETI. Called Lisa in accounting and got the IRC code: 00482509. Hopefully the funds will actually land at the right bank in Edmonton, credited to ETI. If ths works, it will have been very simple and inespensive.

Just out of curiosity, were you given a guaranteed exchange rate for the transfer?

I am having nothing but issues in trying to pay for my trailer using Transferwise and am hoping someone can shed some light. My bank is Wells Fargo and Transferwise provided all of their Wells Fargo info and the ultimate recipient of the funds is Escape (who provided all necessary info). I initiated my transfer using Transferwise and the last step is the transfer within Wells Fargo. The only options are Zelle (to transfer to private individuals) and bill pay. The options under the 'Transfer' tab let you transfer between your own accounts or a non-Wells Fargo account. I even went into the Wells Fargo branch and they insisted there were no other options. Can anyone with a Wells Fargo account please let me know how you successfully used Transferwise? Thanks much!

This process worked perfectly for me - but I think I can help you. First -- doing all the first steps in Transferwise and then taking the document THAT DAY to your bank is the right thing to do. Then your bank does a simple transfer. Here is the hitch for you. The only bank in the US that is allowed to do international transfers is Wells Fargo and they make a lot of money doing it. So you are asking them to do something they may not want to do. Transferwise saved us around $900 by doing it this way. My credit union was happy to do the simple transfer for us and that step only cost $25. You will have to do an update on your transfer with transfer wise to get a current exchange rate and then you ask Wells Fargo to follow the instructions on the sheet - however they can do that as they are actually the bank who takes the money!! Talk to a manager!! They need to work with Transferwise! I feel for you. We wished we had had time to send a check to Escape and make it easy, but our point of finishing our order and picking up our trailer didn't allow for this. GOOD LUCK.
