U.S citizens and Canadian visitors can use an app called Mobile Passport Control (MPC) to expedite their entry process into United States.
It is the first app authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for eligible travelers with a smartphone or tablet to submit their passport information and answer CBP inspection-related questions prior to CBP inspection.
Travelers will be prompted to create a profile via the app with their passport information. The profile includes the traveler’s name, gender, date of birth, and country of citizenship. Upon arriving in the United States, travelers will complete the “New Trip” section by selecting their arrival airport and airline, taking a self-photo, and answering a series of CBP inspection-related questions. 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.
MPC is available to U.S. citizens and Canadian visitors at the following 24 U.S. international airports and one sea port of entry:
You can find more information about the app and how to use it on U.S CBP website. Eligible travelers can download the Mobile Passport app from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
