It’s about to get a whole lot easier for people arriving from an international destination at Calgary airport thanks to the installation of primary inspection kiosks.
80 kiosks will replace the 43 existing units, which is expected to cut the arrival process in half.
“You will no longer have to fill out the paper forms, so now in a very simple, self-serve kind of way, you can just go up to a kiosk and you can fill out more or less the same information and you can get through the customs experience very quickly,” says Michael Hayward, Vice President of Marketing and Guest Experience with the Calgary Airport Authority.
Primary Inspection Kiosks have now arrived at YYC. While additional new kiosks are put in place, longer delays and lines may be possible to make the border go digital.

If you want to make the process even easier, you can download the CanBorder eDeclaration app and then scan a QR code at one of the kiosks upon arrival.
As of Wednesday, the first 36 of 80 units will be ready to use for those passing through YYC’s arrivals, with the remaining units expected to be ready to go by June 4.
