How it works

Step 1:
Set up your Profile

Enter your profile information as it appears on your valid, official passport. You can set up profiles for your entire family. Your information will be encrypted and shared only with CBP.

Step 2:
Answer a few questions

Answer CBP’s four brief questions about your trip. Then carefully review ALL of your information for the trip.

Step 3:
Submit To CBP

Once you land, connect to wireless or wi-fi and submit your data to CBP. Remember: when you submit, you are confirming under penalty of law that your information is correct. Within a few seconds, you will receive a CBP receipt with an encrypted barcode. Your receipt will be valid for 4 hours.

Step 4:
Skip The Line & save time!

Follow the MOBILE PASSPORT CONTROL signs and skip the lines! Show your passport to the CBP officer and scan the barcode on the CBP receipt. And that’s it!

Mobile Passport Control enables travelers to submit their passport and customs declaration information via their smartphone instead of the traditional paper form. The “Mobile Passport” app is free to download and free to use. The app is sponsored by the Airports Council International-North America and authorized by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Wi-Fi or a cellular network are required to submit information and receive a receipt. You may fill out their profiles without being connected.
Yes. However, the Mobile Passport App speeds up the process and allows you to use a special, faster lane.
US citizens with a valid US passport and Canadian citizens with both a valid Canadian passport and B1 or B2 visa status may use the Mobile Passport App. You must have an iOS or Android device that can connect to the internet.
The Mobile Passport App offers you the opportunity to set up profiles for every member of your family. If you are planning a family journey, the App lets you set up a trip for the whole family, after submitting you get QR Code receipts for every family member.
The Mobile Passport App is highly secure, using best practices for privacy along with state-of-the-art technology to protect your data.
Once the traveler downloads the app from the app store, the Mobile Passport App asks travelers to set up a profile with their passport data. If family members are traveling together, additional profiles can be set up. When a traveler is preparing to enter the U.S., the traveler completes the “New Trip” section of the app: selecting arrival airport and airline, taking a “selfie” photo, and answering standard CBP customs declaration questions. Upon arrival, the traveler uses the app to submit this information along with the profile data to CBP. After reviewing the submission, CBP may send a digital, secure bar-coded receipt to the traveler’s smartphone via the app. This receipt will expire in four (4) hours. The traveler then proceeds through the arrivals area, following the Mobile Passport Control signs until prompted by CBP to place their digital bar-coded receipt on the barcode scanner and presenting their passport to a CBP officer. Unless further inspection is necessary, the passenger then exits the arrivals area.
No. You must present your valid, US or Canadian passport to the CBP officer upon arrival.
The data that you submit is transmitted securely to CBP for review, just as it would be if you were using an Automated Passport Control kiosk. The app itself gives you the convenient option of storing your passport information on your smartphone (as a Profile) or deleting it after your trip.
The app will is available for download in Apple’s iTunes App Store and in Google’s Play App Store.
Airports Council International-North America worked closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to design and implement a secure, fast, and traveler-friendly process for Mobile Passport Control. The Mobile Passport App was sponsored by ACI-NA and developed by Airside Mobile, Inc., a proven innovator in applying mobile technology to airport processes. (www.airsidemobile.com)
The Passport Scanner is a new function in the Mobile Passport App. Instead of filling out your passport information manually, the new app feature allows users to scan their passport in just a couple of seconds. The required information gets automatically inserted in the correct data fields. This new function helps Mobile Passport users to decrease time and errors by manually entering the information.

How it works:
1. Scan your Passport
2. Check that the MRZ (Machine Readable Passport Zone) code is located in the drawn field
3. When the code is correctly positioned, the field color turns into green
4. Finished - check your passport information and save

Who can use it?
At the moment following devices include the Passport Scanner:
iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s plus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 5x, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3 Neo, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Moto G2, HTC M8

For accurate results the Passport Scanner requires a high-resolution camera, therefore not all devices include the scanner at the moment. We are working on extending our device set.
