Montréal–Trudeau provides border preclearance for passengers bound for the United States. This means that you will be screened by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer before departure, and will not have to submit to any other formalities when arriving in the United States.
You must have all the required documentation with you, including a valid passport.
Canadian and U.S. passport holders can use the automated passport control kiosks to save time. The new process involves four steps:
- Scan your passport;
- Have your photo taken;
- Answer the questions on the screen;
- Present your documents to the CBP officer.
Passengers holding a passport from another country must follow the usual procedure and report to a CBP officer.
