Custom Clearance On entering Quebec - Montreal


Anyone can advise on where the custom clearance will be? Is it a drive through like entering Ontario?

We will be driving in from NY direction taking I-87 and Route 15.

It's a drive through facility. On the US side, they may ask to check your car to see if you're smuggling cash to Canada. Then, you'll have to stop in with the Canadians.

Do yourself a favor and get off 87 a couple of miles before the 87 station and go through Overton Corners station (to the East) or Hemmingford (to the West.) You'll avoid the often lengthy traffic jams (an hour or more) at the 87 checkpoint.

We are going to be coming up on Saturday on 87 as well. Can anyone give us directions to avoid the traffic going through the 87 custom check?

All of our directions are for taking 87 straight up. It's our first time up and don't want to get lost!
