We are travelling Calgary-Toronto-FLL do we preclear US customs in YYZ? do we collect our baggage to do this?? We are travelling on Canadian Passports. Thanks for your help
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You may or may not have to claim your luggage in Toronto (ask).
Do we grab luggage for this connection to preclear US Customs or do we identify by video like in VANCOUVER? flying with WJ each leg. Also coing home thru Canadian Customs do we grab luggage or identify by video?? Thanks
My 92 year olds friends mother is flying with air Canada from north bay to Yyz to Rsw wirh wheelchair assistance. Can I meet her at Yyz and spend time with her during her layover or will she be kept in through security?.
No, she will be kept inside the secure area, specifically the US Immigration pre-cleared area.
I am booked with United for return journey. Service airline is Air Canada for both journeys - Laguardia to Pearson and Pearson to Dublin Ireland. Is baggage checked through for both flights or should I just take hand luggage. Connection time is 1 hour
Yes, you just have to go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You should have enough time.
Thank you, that's good news. As I am only transferring flights, do I need a Canadian Visa?
What is your citizenship?
I arrive in Toronto at 7:38 departure at 8:45 to Jamaica via west jet are we going to have enough time?
I'm flying in via West Jet T3, connecting with Etihad T3, but on separate reservations, with checked luggage. What will I need to do with my bags on arrival in T3? Will I have to clear security again? Will 1.5 hours be enough?
If your Westjet flight is domestic you will claim your bags from Westjet, re-check them with Etihad, and go through security. You have barely enough time.
We will be flying from the US to Iceland on Air Canada (Express - Air Georgian then Rouge) we have 1hr 20min stop in YYZ to make our connecting flight. Will we have to collect our checked bag and recheck it? Will we need to go through customs in YYZ?
No, you will not have to collect your bags. You will just go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.
We arrive on Westjet to Terminal 3 from Wpg at 8:30am, and our fligt to Tampa is at 10am. Will we have enough time to make the connection, and do we need to pick up our luggage from somewhere. Says we arrive at gate A5 and depart at gate A18. Both flights are Westjet. Thanks in advance. I've never done a connection flight and I'm a little worried, especially if I have no idea where or what I'm supposed to be doing.
In Toronto you will go to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance inside Terminal 3. You have enough time. You will follow a sign saying "US Departures"
I am coming from Frankfort(FRA) to Toronto(YYZ) and then Raleigh(RDU), I have only 1 hour and 25 minutes' layover. Flights are Operated by Air Canada, and I travel with US Passport. Is that time enough.? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time. In Toronto you will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs preclearance.
I am coming from Regina to Toronto and then Fort Lauderdale, I have only one hour layover all flights are booked with air Canada with Indian Passport. Is one hour enough for custom clearance? I am confused about that bag picture thing? Thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
