The Mobile Passport app speeds you through U.S. Customs and Border Protection at over 20 major U.S. airports and 1 U.S. cruise port.
Officially authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, MOBILE PASSPORT allows travelers to submit their passport control and customs declaration information via their iPhone or iPad and bypass the regular line to enter the United States. This app effectively replaces the traditional blue-and-white paper declaration form required of all travelers entering the U.S. by air or sea.

1. Complete your profile with basic passport information.
2. Answer CBP’s questions about your trip.
3. Submit your information UPON YOUR ARRIVAL and get a receipt from CBP.
4. Follow the signs to the dedicated Mobile Passport Control lane.
5. Scan your receipt and show your passport to the CBP officer.

Genuinely awesome.

Arrived to MIA international last night with a 400+ person queue. Downloaded the app and was through customs in 5 minutes tops. Don't travel without this.
Aarholm on 8/17/2017
Cut the General Customs line and was through to the baggage claim within 5 minutes. This was amazing. Use it always.
It was a breeze
Izini on 8/17/2017
My flight arrived at JFK international airport at 1:50 AM--pretty much the witching hours. Who would have thought about encountering so many other travelers at such a time? But there they were. No sweat for me. I answered all the questions on my Mobile App before reaching customs. And in less than five minutes I was done. My second time using the Mobile App and I will recommend people to download the app. It's a time saver. The only thing you would lose is waiting in long lines.
jake711 on 8/16/2017
Took 5 minutes to fill everything out and I walked up and skipped a 45min-1 hour line. Insane. THANK YOU FOR THIS!
jocko463 on 8/16/2017
First timer with this app. Worked like a charm. Down grade one star for issues with retaking photo; it wouldn't accept retake pic and kept the first shot ...this on an iPhone 5S. I had to scratch the passport entry and start anew and carefully stage my selfie. It would be nice to know *before* you begin the process there's a 4 hour maximum time limit once you send your info and get your receipt. Overall it made going through US immigrations a breeze.
Such a breeze

Nailed it
Benjy6790 on 8/16/2017
Easy, efficient, saves time
Fast and easy
Caseybb on 8/16/2017
Easy to use as you taxi to the gate. So fast and bypass the long lines.
First time using today
Ashleyjordanjosephine on 8/16/2017
Absolutely amazing! Love it ! Saved us at least an hour in line!
Zipped through customs
HRPSTAX on 8/16/2017
I would have given this app a 5 star review if it had been able to scan my passport. However, it was super easy and super fast to manually enter my info. I did it while waiting in line.
forgetful.bunny on 8/16/2017
Was easy to use and intuitive. Made getting brought customs in JFK a breeze!!
Almost there
Fedor.. on 8/16/2017
I've used in twice in the past three months and each time has been fast and efficient. It's good to see American airports slowly catch up to their European (German) counterparts.
Gynesis on 8/16/2017
I am so happy that I speed through customs like speedy Gonzalez the process with no paper and no long time wait is amazing. The barcode on the phone did all the talking for me.
Best thing ever!!!
Vpr809 on 8/16/2017
It was so easy. traveled with a 4 year old and from the plane to the door was about 20. Minutes. It would have been faster id had didn't have to wait for my luggage.
Great must have app!
TheJoker54321 on 8/16/2017
Zipped through customs lightning fast.
A must have app
Not a fan of lines on 8/15/2017
Got to customs this evening and the line was 100 deep. Downloaded the app, easily filled out my trip details, and was able to get into the mobile passport line, which had 3 people in it. No-brainer.
Very Impressed!!!
Mrdjeep77 on 8/15/2017
Cannot wait to use it when I come back from my international trip next month, so happy!!!
Won't travel without it
sozolady on 8/15/2017
Entered through Miami which is a very busy point of entry and we had a very short wait. Maybe 10 people before us. This app is easy to use and I love that you can add more than one traveler so you only need one phone for all the family traveling with you. I've recommended this app to all my family when traveling thank you
Super easy, sped through customs
EEALee on 8/15/2017
After more than 30 hours of flying, I do not have the patience to hang out in lines. I downloaded this app and used it for the first time today, and it was GREAT. No long wait, just zip straight through, do your interview, scan the QR code, and move on with your day. I'm a big fan of anything that reduces paper waste and makes better use of my time, and this definitely did both.
Must have
Numba1Review on 8/15/2017
Used this today to come back to the US from Uganda in to LAX.Literally walked right up to the counter. Took two seconds.
App works great
sooneratkins on 8/15/2017
I couldn't be more pleased. It's not GE, but very close.
Fantastic App
Sound Surgeon on 8/15/2017
Fantastic App it just works and allows you to speed threw the airport. Try it!
Great app
Tecas girl on 8/15/2017
This is a great app that really works. We landed at DFW this afternoon and whizzed through faster than friends with Global Access. Another friend downloaded on the spot and also got through fast. I'm sure it depends on how CBP is set up at each airport but so far we're very pleased. BTW the customs video on the plane pitched the app too.
Works great
Fred Serra on 8/15/2017
Crossed through customs and immigration in Chicago in less than 2 minutes. App is easy to use. I entered data on the plane and send info once we landed. It was a breeze.
Kellosity on 8/15/2017
Super easy to use. Avoid long lines!
Was a great experience
nomada28392 on 8/15/2017
Definitely will recommend this app to anyone that don't want to wait in the long lines or have to write on that form plus you go green and save trees
Truly worth 5 stars
G_08128 on 8/15/2017
Was on a international flight and a flight attendant mentioned the app to me . We zipped through customs.
Best thing ever
Rubybabylove on 8/15/2017
If you don't want to pay money for global entry just get this!! It's everything !
App not working
undermusik on 8/15/2017
App is not working for few days now, tried numerous times, when trying to get the receipt it comes back with an" unable to process your request..." Tried different airports, different days.
Great for flight crews
Leigh Cheek on 8/15/2017
Ez and quick! Love it!
Better than global entry
C.Stall on 8/15/2017
My husband has global entry but I do not. Got the app for our trip to Africa and I got through customs faster than him. Totally recommend.
Dr_Suze on 8/15/2017
This app is wonderful - I was able to skip line and go to a kiosk - it's a breeze! Highly recommend!
olipana on 8/15/2017
This is an amazing app i Fled thru international customs and flying alone with two children under 4 it was a BLESSING!!!!!!
It works!
Standing for Justice on 8/15/2017
I used the app today for the first time and it worked as expected. I scanned my passport, took a selfie and answered the questions on the plane and submitted everything after we landed. Then I proceeded to the very short line and was done with everything within 15 minutes of landing.
Best 3 second download EVER
Mister Cranky on 8/15/2017
We saw the signs at LAX, connected to the dedicated Wi-Fi, scanned our passports while standing near the ladies' room, answered the four customs questions in two seconds, got in the empty mobile app line, out two minutes later. Hundreds watched in awe from the US/Canadian line. Superb.
Best App Ever!!
NykkiGee on 8/14/2017
I was told about this app literally hours before an international flight. I downloaded, added my info, snapped a pic of my passport and myself and VOILA!! I received a barcode and confirmation verifying my info. When I arrived, I literally walked right thru customs with a scan of the barcode I was sent. Easy breezy!! It became the highlight of my vacation!!
RuvMasterFlex on 8/14/2017
As good as Global Entry...
Wow and fast
Pennchan on 8/14/2017
I've been a global entry member for years and I kept seeing the mobile passport lane. So I looked it up and asked the customs officer about it. He said it was fast and accurate. It's actually faster that global! I will be using this a lot more in the future.
Customs App and Flight Attendants
#GirlsTrip2017 on 8/14/2017
Would be great if All Flight attendants would inform travelers BEFORE Departure and again on Arrival! Once downloaded it is a breeze and a quicker process compared to the long lines without it✈️🛬
Foot doc 127 on 8/14/2017
Used this app coming into Houston from Puerto Vallarta. Finished my questionnaire after landing and had my receipt by the time I was at the gate. Breezed through customs and was treated very professionally. Making sure all my family is aware of this app. Thank you.
does not work on Singapore Airline
A Human01 on 8/14/2017
I updated the app and it wiped off SQ, code for singapoor airlines. Sent multiple emails to the aap developers, no avail. Do not update the app if you want to continue using the global entry. I gave it 3 stars because it worked for me once, after I updated, it deleted the airline so I was unable to use it. Lets see when they add Singapoor Airlines again.
Best kept secret
Traveling feet on 8/14/2017
Speed thru customs and leaves global entry in the dust and its FREE. Inhave recommended to all my friends and family and they are so appreciative. Simple and easy to use even for those techincally challanged✈️✈️✈️✈️🔫
Breezed right through
slomarcie on 8/14/2017
This was a great experience. So Nice to have the family on the same app. Great way to go!
IZD on 8/14/2017
This app is awesome!such a time saver!
bubbly_jo on 8/14/2017
Less than 5 mins from plane to bagging area.
The best time saver you will ever find
S.D.57588900 on 8/14/2017
I downloaded it while at the airport and it helped me skip the normal line that must have 100 people in it. Seems like not many people know about it so I breeze through a special line. I also didn't had a pen to fill out the customs form :) so this was a life saver.
Huge time-saver
Maybe so,..maybe not on 8/14/2017
Download now - don't wait.
Great App
Francesca campa on 8/14/2017
Im a flight attendant and use this at least twice a week when coming in from an international flight. This is the BIGGEST life saver. Saves me time and money. Great app.
First person through customs! It works just as advertised!
avidifan on 8/14/2017
The app was very user friendly, simple to use, and it worked as planned at MSP in Minneapolis.
The best idea
david i❤️liquor on 8/14/2017
