According to here the US Customs service at Toronto Pearson YYZ only opens at 6 am. Nevertheless, Air Canada has flights at 6+ am to New York. In that case, how could you clear the border and board the flight?

    I'm pretty sure those hours are wrong and preclearance is open earlier than that. – Michael Hampton Aug 29 at 1:54

    I agree with Michael. If they have scheduled flights (which they do) that operate at that time then they surely have US officers to process them – Ozzy Aug 29 at 2:08
  • The site you linked does not list hours of opereation of the Customs service. Looking carefully at the navigation bar with >> symbols near the top of the page (and also at the URL), the page describes availability of enrolment for the "Global Entry" program at these locations. – Ari Brodsky Aug 29 at 9:27

    Thanks all. Normally how long does it take to clear the border ? I am PR with French passport (eligible ETA) and not Canadian. I am asking since I would have to take night bus 300 from Toronto to the airport. Flight is supposed to be at 6h30, what time do you think I should arrive at the airport ? @AriBrodsky what is this Global Entry and how is it different from other types of entry ? My apologies for the amateur questions; my first time going to US. – Kenny Aug 29 at 14:35

    I believe you have linked the wrong information. The link appears to be when the Global Entry office is open at those airports. For Toronto, given the dense flight schedule and likelihood of delays, inspection is probably happening around the clock. – Andrew Lazarus Aug 29 at 19:27
