About this app

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).

Honestly, I love that I can skip the lines coming back into Canada. This app wasn't great when it first came out but it's much smoother and more user friendly now.

Distressful app and good for nothing. Even though 8 have an account and saved information before, it kept saying my email address is not valid.

As a frequent traveller of a foreign passport with permanent resident status, I have used this app many times and works super smoothly. This allows me to get back to Canada through the electronic stations, quickly sans issues, skipping the line of those who doesn't use or the suckers who refuse to use the app. The issues in the reviews here are all user-side problems. Users need simple preparation; use the app with data or wifi, before you take off to or at the airport, on a decent phone.
