YVR's BorderXpress kiosks now use facial recognition technology

Vancouver International Airport will be the first Canadian airport to offer enhanced self-serve BorderXpress kiosks, configured to meet the requirements of the Canada Border Service Agency’s (CBSA) modernized NEXUS program.

Using the new modernized kiosks, NEXUS members will tap or scan their NEXUS card and capture a photo to verify their identity using facial recognition technology (replacing the old iris recognition technology) before proceeding to a CBSA officer for final inspection. This initiative aligns the NEXUS program with international trends on traveller processing and supports the CBSA’s goal to increase efficiencies without compromising security.

For more information on this initiative, including instructions on how to use the new NEXUS facial verification kiosks, visit the NEXUS Air webpage.
