About this app

Notice: As of October 1, 2022, ArriveCAN no longer collects personal health and travel information on behalf of Public Health Agency of Canada.

ArriveCAN still contains Advance CBSA Declaration, which allows you to answer customs and immigration questions up to 72 hours in advance of flying into Canada. It is currently available to international air travellers who enter Canada at selected airports.

By submitting your customs and immigration information in advance, you will spend less time at a primary inspection kiosk (PIK) or eGate when you arrive at the airport. This contributes to shorter line-ups in arrivals halls.

At the border, you will be prompted to scan your travel document at a primary inspection device and confirm your identity. Once your identity has been confirmed, your Advance CBSA Declaration will be retrieved from ArriveCAN for you to review and certify. If changes are required, you can edit and update your declaration prior to certification.

Use of the Advance CBSA Declaration feature of ArriveCAN is entirely optional.

Please refer to the accessibility notice for this app:

This app supports English, French and Spanish (as per your device’s language settings).

Able to create profiles easy enough, but when trying to schedule a trip I always have issues! Example: Select all the appropriate trip info (who/where/when), then unable to continue to the next section to finalize trip. My latest issue was not being able to continue if I selected one specific profile (that I have used and traveled with previously) in my list, it would gray out the arrow to continue. Extremely frustrating to use!

Terrible user experience and implementation. Working in the tourism industry, I can't count the number of times I have had to help our guests through the app, due to the lack of intuity and user-unfriendly interface. Certainly the majority of our customers being senior citizens is a factor, but the fact that the Canadian government requires such a long and technologically intensive process for people who are so unfamiliar with it is pretty egregious. I hope this app is done away with very soon.

It was difficult to work through to the end. The lack of additional prompts on each page leads one to conclude erroneously, that one is finished when you press save. In addition, there should be a more seamless flow to the next question. Too much back & forth to get to the end of a section. It would have been helpful to see a prompt that there were still 2-3 sections that needed to be completed, This form does not allow for a second cruise to be filled when you are travelling on the same ship
