Windsor Airport Arrivals

Security procedures

CATSA security at Windsor Airport provides almost the same security procedures for arrivals as for the departures. CATSA security is responsible for passengers' safety, and provided procedures are intended to remove all the hazardous materials from the airport area and help travelers to get to their destination safely.

CATSA security at YGG airport provides security screening procedures for all arrivals. During the CATSA security screening, passengers are required to remove personal items, especially metal belongings, including coins and keys, and put them in the bin. Travelers also remove shoes, belts, jackets, laptops, and also place them in the plastic conveyor separately. Those items undergo security screening.

Border control

Windsor Airport also provides Windsor Police department and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). VBSA agents are responsible for passenger's safety at Windsor Airport. Sometimes travelers are required to go through additional screening with CBSA agents at YQG airport.

Travelers have to carry valid documentation at the checkpoints, including passport, which is the most acceptable form of identification.

After CATSA security procedures, passengers can claim their baggage at the Windsor airport's baggage claim area.

For international travelers, proof citizenship is required when crossing the international Windsor Border. Accepted documentation forms are a birth certificate of citizenship, government-issued photo IDs such as a valid passport or driver's license. If you are a permanent resident of the US, you can carry a Permanent Resident Card.
