Program speeds customs in Vancouver

ADVERTISEMENT

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Vancouver Airport Authority have launched Automated Passport Control, an entry process that will expedite preclearance inspection for passengers traveling from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to the U.S. by allowing entry of passport information at a self-service kiosk.



Instead of filling out a declaration card and taking their travel documents to a CBP officer, eligible passengers can follow the on-screen instructions to scan their U.S. passport, answer the customs declaration questions, receive a receipt and proceed to the CBP officer to finalize processing.



The Vancouver Airport Authority developed the concept and built out the technology, similar to that which it uses for travelers returning to Canada. It does not require pre-registration.
