Save time at YVR thanks to new primary inspection kiosks

Filling in paper customs declaration cards before landing is now a thing of the past for international passengers bound for Vancouver.

As of this past April, international travellers arriving at YVR will use one of 90 new Primary Inspection Kiosks (PIK) in the YVR customs hall to scan their travel documents, take their photo and complete an on-screen declaration before seeing an officer. This is part of the Canadian Border Service Agency's decision to modernize Canadian borders.

Or, for an even speedier entry process, travellers can complete their declaration on the new CanBorder-eDeclaration smartphone app and scan their quick response (QR) code at a kiosk.

Primary Inspection Kiosks will improve border security while streamlining service and reducing wait times at Canada's busiest airports. To learn more watch the video here.
