When you arrive, you will have to clear border control. YUL has a connections centre that separates travellers early on from travellers who are headed to Montréal and must clear customs. Travellers connecting through Montréal to other destinations will be able to clear customs in the new dedicated connections' area.
When you arrive, you must have uploaded and provided all required information through ArriveCan.
After having gone through border control – primary inspection, you will be asked to follow one of two procedures:
1- Your airline offers the option of automatically transferring your luggage:
- You will be directed to the international departures area. If you are not arriving from the European Union, you will first be directed to the pre-boarding screening checkpoint for connections.
2- Your airline does not offer the option of automatically transferring your luggage:
- You will have to pick it up your luggage from the carousel, then follow the normal procedure for international arrivals and then for international departures.
