Mobile Passport Control streamlines your U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing experience. Simply fill out your profile and answer CBP’s questions – then go straight to the “Mobile Passport Control” lane at the airport.

CBP Mobile Passport Control is a voluntary program which can be used by U.S. Citizens and Canadian citizen visitors at any of the supported airport and seaport locations found on our website: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/us-citizens/mobile-passport-control

CBP Mobile Passport Control can be used in 5 simple steps:
1.) Eligible traveler(s) download the application and create a profile(s) using biographic information from their passport(s) and take a “selfie”; all eligible members in a family group can create a profile, submit their CBP form (up to 12 eligible members per trip), and store their information completely free to be used for future travel.
2.) Upon landing, travelers select their method of travel, port of entry and terminal, answer CBP inspection related questions, certify the truthfulness and accuracy of their answers, and submit their profiles and responses to CBP.
3.) Once submitted, CBP sends an encrypted Quick Response (QR) code back to the traveler’s device.
4.) Travelers proceed to the MPC designated queue upon arrival and present their QR code to a CBP Officer along with their passport. Please note: MPC does not replace your passport; your passport will need to be presented to the CBP Officer.
5.) The CBP Officer will complete their inspection.

MPC provides a more efficient, secure in-person inspection process for the CBP Officer and the traveler, and shortens overall entry wait times.

Not ready for prime time

1) Need to be able to load and save basic data even if not immediately traveling.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! We understand your interest in adding traveler information before traveling and we will certainly look at improving that experience in the future. Keep an eye out for future releases as we are always making improvements.

In the meantime, you can choose a mode of entry even if you aren't yet traveling and manage your travelers and documents without making a submission by tapping the X in the top right corner of the submission page.

Slow, balky piece of junk

This is difficult to get, a pain to start, and it was the slowest line in passport control by 15 minutes. I timed the guy who got off the plane next to me. He went through regular passport control 15 minutes before I did. There were lots of people in line behind me. What a waste of time after a long flight. Don’t bother.
