I need to know what to do with a Gecco that I found in my luggage today after coming back from Mexico on Sunday and any possible health threats it might have. Looking for a telephone number to speak to someone. ????
I am flying from Alaska to Vancover on a AC flight with a connecting flight with WJ to Toronto. How much time do I need to clear customs and change airlines. 2hrs ok.
I am travelling from YEG to Maui at Christmas with a connection flight in YVR. Is 1.5 hrs. enough time to clear US customs? Will I have to pick up my checked bags before going through customs?
Hi, my family and I are going from Victoria to Palm Springs through Vancouver. Most of the least expensive fares only have a 1.5 hour layover in Vancouver. I am concerned that this may not be nearly enough time to, get to the US departures area, get our baggage, get through customs, get through immigration, and get our new boarding passes. Seems like 2 hours would be a minimum. What insights/advice can you provide.
That is enough time.
Thank you, but do you mean 1.5 hours is enough or 2 hours?
1.5 should be enough.
Do we have to go through a different security when we go to Cuba in march 2018? Plan is to go west jet flight from Vancouver ,Toronto then Cuba
There is no special security for international flights, also, your first flight is domestic anyway.

from HK to YYZ, transit YVR. Both are Air Canada flights. Do I need to clear custom at YVR? I am travelling with my mom. Both of us are HK passport holders.
Yes, you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.
I will be arriving YVR at 1630(ETA) and the other Air Canada flight will leave YVR for YYZ at 1755(ETD). Is 1 hour and 25 min minute transit time enough for the immigration and customs procedures in Vancouver? Thx
That should be enough time.
I have a 2 hr layover in Vancouver from Calgary via WestJet before departing to Sydney Via Qantas. My wife is Australian and I am Canadian. Do we have to go through customs in vancouver? If so do we have enough time and will our baggage be delivered all the way through?
There is no Canadian Customs when leaving Canada. Are your flights all one one reservation or two separate reservations?
Yes it's under 1 reservation. I guess what i mean to ask is do we have to go through airport security again for the international terminal in Vancouver? as the flight from Calgary with west jet would be domestic. And will our checked in luggage be transferred automatically between west jet and qantas without having to recheck them?
Vancouver only has one Terminal. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
