any chance Arrivecan will go away?

For those of you complaining about ArriveCAN- have you ever tried to visit the USA as a foreigner? Yes AC can be a tiny bit pesty- but just a tiny bit. And yes- some of the instructions have been confusing. But nothing like the red tape many have to go through to visit here. 

 

So true.

 

When the US implemented the current requirements, it convinced me to also get a Canadian passport. If I enter the US on my UK passport, I require fingerprints, photograph and e-visa, which costs money.

We're Canadians, we live to complain. In the winter we complain about the weather - too cold. In the summer we complain about the weather - too hot. In the spring we complain about the weather - too wet. In the fall we complain about the weather - too hot - too cold - too wet -  too short ... and the Blue Jays are bums again for not getting to World Series. And if our favorite NHL Team gets off to a 0 and 3 start to begin the season;  😱 "the sky is falling, the sky is falling!"

 

Our official national symbol might be the the red maple leaf but it should be red WHINE.

I am from Montreal,  Canada 

Recently  we did a b2b. NYC, Halifax  , NYC, Bermuda,  NYC, Halifax,  NYC and then drive home

. We did arrive can 3 times in 14 days 

When we came home, the border agent did have us explain . So he had the info from arrive can.

It is not just for covid. 

It is easy and free. 

And you have plenty of time to submit.

Our Canadian pastime is complaining about ourselves. Our American cousins' pastime is complaining about everything and everybody that's not themselves. 😉

Oh yeah... I just got back from Europe and the AC flights through Toronto were fine and ArriveCAN was quick and easy to complete.

I'm glad your return from Europe went smoothly. ArriveCan is such a simple app to use. As for Pearson, did you buy a lotto ticket afterwards? Hey, when you're on a winning streak...😉

 

Also glad your Roger's is back up. I sometimes think my Cogeco is bad but Roger's sure has been having issues in recent years.

we don't all have internet access when we are traveling.

That is not true.  You can literally finish it at the cruise terminal while you are standing in line.  There is both a phone signal and wifi

What purpose does it serve at this point?

vaccination is requrired still and they're expanding it to take place of the old sheets you filled out or filled out on arrival at kiosk. so they're going to expand it for custom declaration and etc as well as passport info and etc for pre flight review

AriveCAN 2.0 is in the works.  It is expect to replace the need to fill out any declaration card or use the kiosk when entering Canada.   The should speed up the entire customs immigration process.
