There’s a new app in town. And this app will let you get through customs quickly without having to go through a lengthy application process.
It sounds too good to be true, but it is!
The Mobile Passport App by Airside Mobile lets you skip the line at US airports for Custom and Border Protection (CBP). Just fill out your profile and answer CBP’s questions – then go straight to the “Mobile Passport Control” express lane at the airport!
The process looks really easy too,
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.
ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS
Answer CBP’s four brief questions about your trip. Then carefully review ALL of your information for the trip.
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.
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!
This app is still only available at limited, but popular international airports:
It’s available on Android and Apple. Not too bad!
