YYC eliminates paper declaration cards with PIK installation

Calgary International Airport has partnered with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to launch Primary Inspection Kiosks (PIK) for use by passengers arriving on international and U.S. flights.

Travellers will no longer be required to fill out standard paper declaration cards (E311 forms) once all PIK units are installed and operating, the airport said. To speed up entry, travellers can also install the CanBorder eDeclaration mobile app to their phones (available on all platforms), to prepare their declaration in advance and then scan their quick response (QR) code at a designated kiosk upon arrival.

In total, 80 kiosks will replace the existing 43 units, providing all international and Canadian passengers arriving in Canada with a simplified self-service option.

The first 36 PIK units are now available for guests, with the remaining units to be installed by June 4. During this transition time, longer lines and delays may occur for incoming international and U.S. arriving passengers.
