The Automated Passport Control program is currently available for US and Canadian passport holders and eligible visitors from Visa Waiver Countries at Vancouver International Airport. All other customers must be processed by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer located in a booth.
Automated Passport Control helps travellers move more quickly through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance inspection process by allowing entry of passport information at a self-service kiosk. Users respond to a set of simple questions, take a photo and then are issued a receipt that they present to a CBP Officer for a final inspection before completing the process. No pre-registration is necessary and there is no fee involved in participation.
