Get ready to say goodbye to long lines at Canada Place.
If you’re embarking on an cruise to Alaska this year from Port Metro Vancouver’s Canada Place Cruise Terminal, you’ll notice some exciting new changes that have been made in order to make clearing U.S. Customs & Border Protection easier than ever before.
A total of 10 new YVR BorderXpress Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks were recently installed in the U.S. Customs staging area of Canada Place, just in time for the launch of the 2015 Alaska cruise season from Vancouver. This translates into fewer lines and shorter wait times thanks to the BorderXpress kiosks, which can process passengers up to four times faster than through traditional clearance methods.
“With this launch, Port Metro Vancouver’s cruise terminal has become the first worldwide to utilize automated passport control technology for U.S. bound passengers,” said Peter Xotta, Vice President of Planning and Operations with Port Metro Vancouver. “These kiosks will further enhance the cruise passenger experience at Canada Place.”
