Plan your trip across the border
In ArriveCAN you must identify:
- how you are entering Canada (for example, by air, land or sea) and
- where you 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.
Every year, millions of Canadian citizens and visitors travel across our Canadian borders. Everyone wants their border crossing to go smoothly with fewer delays. The best way to make sure this happens is to know what to expect and be prepared.
Whether you're returning home or visiting, CBSA wants to help you plan your trip across the border with some useful tools.
