Vancouver Airport Transit

The airport has one terminal for flights to the USA, the second for domestic and the third for international flights. Ideally, set aside 1.5 hours for the transfer. There is an advanced US immigration control point at the airport, so all flights to the United States behave as domestic upon arrival and you do not have to go through passport control again. A valid eTA visa (Electronic Travel Authorization) is required for all arrivals in Canada as well as all flight connections in Canadian airports. Apply for the eTA on the official website here.
