Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Adds App for Passport and Customs Clearance
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport announced that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection will introduce Mobile Passport Control, a new mobile app meant to expedite arrivals at the airport. The app was first introduced at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in August, 2014.
Eligible travelers can download the app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Once installed, a traveler would create a profile using his passport information.
Upon arrival in the United States, a passenger would create and complete the “New Trip” section of the app, which is the electronic equivalent of the traditional customs declaration form.
The system will send users an electronic receipt with an encrypted quick response code, which travelers will bring, along with their passport and smartphone or tablet, to a CBP officer.
Mobile Passport Control is currently available for use by all United States and Canadian citizens with a valid passport.
