I have my TN visa original approval notice on hand already.

I will be flying from Toronto -> Vancouver -> Seattle

Just wondering, do I perform the TN visa pre-clearance in Vancouver or Toronto?

I am worry because it is a domestic -> international flight, I only have 1 hour layover in Vancouver and I can't collect my checked in luggage in Vancouver as it is a domestic flight.

Also, how long does the TN visa pre-clearance takes in general? I don't think 1 hour is enough is it, loll.

    Immigration will happen at secondary in pre clearance at Van. It takes from 1-2 hours

      Did it >5 years ago so not so recent. The wait/processing time was long but painless. I didn’t get any much questions or anything

    Make sure you have start + end date on your application papers. The agent was stingy for me because I had start date and duration (3 years), but no end date. Too hard to count I guess 🙄

      Well, my offer doesn't have a end date, what to deal with that?

      Contact the law firm that did your application and request for it. I was able to get throught eventually but took a good extra 20-30 min than regular process. I heard that customs might be a bit easier in Vancouver if you go throught it over there.

      My brother went throught the same exact issue for his TN when he left from Toronto airport, just letting you know. Hopefully you'll be luckier than us, but if the agent starts being a pain ask for his supervisor.

    1-2 hours. That was slow! I drove from Montréal to Lacolle border crossing (New York State). Took 5 minutes.
