  • Customs/Immigration Requirement for Connecting Flights
    Apr 28, 2015
    This is a follow-up question to an earlier post. I bought a ticket through Lufthansa from PDX to MUC. The first leg of this ticket is an Air Canada flight to YVR. Since Air Canada is a code-share partner of Lufthansa, I assume it will issue my Lufthansa flight boarding pass at PDX, as most other airlines would. The Air Canada flight lands at Gate E95, and the Lufthansa flight leaves from terminal D. The YVR terminal map indicates both of these are after security. In this case, would I still need to collect my baggage and go through security at YVR after already going through security at PDX? Again, any information will be greatly appreciated.


  • Picking up baggage at customs
    Feb 11, 2015
    I am flying into YVR from China, and I'm supposed to continue on to Seattle. I want to skip the last leg of my flight to Seattle and stay in Vancouver. But - will I be able to pick up my checked baggage during customs at YVR, or will they automatically continue on to Seattle?


    You will have to pick up your baggage, but it will be in the US Immigration Pre-clearance area, AFTER you will have already gone through US Immigration. You will either have to change your ticket or not check a bag if you want to end your trip in Vancouver.

  • Passport Check at Intl. departure gate

    What's with the passport check at the airbridge at international departure gates? And why do the officers only seem to pull aside non-caucasians?
