Automated Passport Control
Automated Passport Control is a new expedited customs entry process that will allow eligible passengers travelling from Vancouver International Airport to the U.S. to clear customs more efficiently, while still ensuring the same high standard of safety and security. Instead of filling out a declaration card and taking their travel documents to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer, passengers who are eligible and choose to use Automated Passport Control can proceed directly to a self-service kiosk in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance area. Travellers will follow the on-screen instructions to scan their U.S. or Canadian passport, answer the customs declaration questions using the touch screen, receive a receipt confirming their information and proceed to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer to finalize processing. Automated Passport Control is currently open to U.S. passport holders and Canadian passport holders.
