BORDERXPRESS™ USA: Automated Passport Control

Our BORDERXPRESS™ Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks allow travelers arriving into the United States to quickly and securely complete US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) formalities. YVR's own Innovative Travel Solutions developed the technology in 2009 and this technology is now available at 32 airport and seaport locations across North America and the Caribbean.

How it works

Instead of filling out a declaration card and taking their travel documents to a US CBP officer, eligible passengers choosing to use BORDERXPRESS™ kiosks can proceed directly to a self-service kiosk in the US Customs and Border Protection area and complete the two-step process.

STEP 1: Travelers complete the data-entry function themselves at the kiosk, which sends their encrypted information to US CBP for review and returns a response in seconds.

STEP 2: With receipt in hand, travelers proceed to a US CBP officer who verifies the document.
