• Automated Passport Control

    Passengers Departing to the United States

    As part of our ongoing commitment to improve the travel experience and the speed of U.S. Departures, Toronto Pearson is excited to introduce Automated Passport Control.

    This collaborative effort with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) makes it easier and faster to move through CBP processing for U.S. and Canadian passport holders by automating the traditional paper declaration form.


    Who Can Use Automated Passport Control?

    If you are a U.S. passport holder or a Canadian passport holder and do not have or require a Visa or work permit to enter the U.S., you are eligible to use APC.


    3 Steps For Using Automated Passport Control

    1. To begin, simply insert the picture page of your passport face down and follow the onscreen instructions. Your picture will be taken and included with your current flight information.
    2. Ensure you read the questions carefully and using the touch screen, enter your response. These questions are very similar to the traditional paper declaration form.
    3. A receipt will be printed displaying your photo. We recommend that you place it into your passport at the picture page.


    Important! Keep your receipt handy as you will need to present it along with your passport to a CBP Officer for the next step in the process.
