Travel between Canada and US to ease further with Canada passing its own pre-clearance bill
The new law will make allow passengers to clear US Customs at select locations in Canada before leaving the country.
Although this facility already in vogue, it is limited to only a few airports in Canada like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg and a couple of other points.
The US currently operates pre-clearance facilities at 15 airports in six countries, including Canada, media reported.
With the new law in place, more airports and land, rail, and marine locations will offer pre-clearance in Canada.
