Hi there, This is my first post to the board everyone so apologies if I mess something up. I did do a fairly lengthy search looking for advice on this specific case, which I would have thought would be kind of common but maybe not? I currently live in GDL and have a RT visa via my employer. My mom plans to come down and live with me initially on a tourist visa while we work out how she can get a permanente. My circumstances are this: My mom is basically getting rid of all of her household goods except for some papers, linens, dishes, and CDs/DVDs, DVD player and a TV and printer. That's literally the whole list. She will be driving down from Seattle. Oh, one other pertinent piece of info, she'll be bringing a cat. We've gone through getting his papers before, I think that part is pretty straightforward. My questions are: 1. Where would you advise she cross the border? Some folks from the lake have said that crossing at Nogales or Laredo is best, rather than straight down through California. 2. She would like to travel "light" - she wants to ship as much of that list as she can. I did see there's Strom-White, but she's not going to lakeside nor is she coming from Laredo. She was hoping to do something like FedEx or DHL. Is this feasible? What are the gotchas I should be looking for? Trying to navigate FedEx's international shipping site is... trying. Your guys' help would be invaluable - I've been directed here several times, finally taking up that advice! Regards, Ronan
