KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Mobile Passport Control (MPC) allows U.S. citizens to expedite through U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Just fill out your profile and answer CBP’s questions – then go straight to the “MobilePassport Control” express lane at the airport!
Eligible travelers can download the Mobile Passport app from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Travelers will be prompted to create a profile via the app with their passport information. Once the traveler submits their transaction through the app, the traveler will receive an electronic receipt with an Encrypted Quick Response (QR) code. Travelers then bring their passport and mobile device with their digital bar-coded receipt to a CBP officer to finalize their inspection for entry into the United States.
For single (divorced, widowed, or simply married, but solo) parents, grandparents, or family friends taking children on a vacation, there is an often-overlooked planning step that can end a vacation before it begins—the permission letter. Airlines and immigration agents can deny minor children initial boarding or entry to foreign countries without proper proof of identification and citizenship and a permission letter from absent or non-custodial parents.
