Smart and secure border tools for travel and trade

From: Canada Border Services Agency

Attention ArriveCAN users

Travellers using ArriveCAN must identify:

  • how they are entering Canada (for example, by air, land or sea) and
  • where they are entering Canada (port of entry)

If your precise travel details do not appear in the app, select any available option. This will allow you to continue to the next screen, complete your submission and enter Canada.

We're working with the latest technologies to help people and goods move across the border more seamlessly and securely.

Over the next years, our Traveller Modernization initiative is delivering new digital tools and technologies to improve and expedite traveller processing without compromising the safety and security of our border.
