CBP expands mobile passport app

CBP expands mobile passport app

Last August, the Customs and Border Patrol introduced a mobile iOS application that streamlined the entry of qualified individuals into the United States by allowing them to submit passport information electronically prior to inspection.  

CPB’s Mobile Passport Control app is now expanding to include Android devices and will also be available to travelers at the Miami International Airport. 

When Mobile Passport Control first launched, it was used solely at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.  Due to the success of the mobile application, CBP expects expand to an additional 20 airports by 2016. 

Developed by Airports Council International-North America in concert with Airside Mobile and CBP, Mobile Passport Control allows travelers to create a profile, submit a declaration form and get an electronic receipt that they can show to agents at the airport, along with their passports. Travelers using the app experience more rapid service and less wait times, CPB said.
