About this app

***********ATTENTION U.S. and Canadian Passport Travelers****************
Effective February 1, 2022, the U.S. Government CBP Mobile Passport Control (MPC) application will be the only authorized application for MPC traveler entry into the United States.

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:

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.

Worthless! The app works fine, but no one at CBP knows about it. We came into Newark Airport and had submitted the forms. The agent told us they weren't using it and we had to use the kiosk. Because we submitted twice, once with the app and once with the kiosk, we had to go to a longer line to clear things up.

Super simple to use. The passport scan feature works better than my experience with airside. We flew through customs at LAX. One individual gave it one star because they had to pull down their mask for a photo. Its ridiculous that would drop it so low. You have to drop your mask for tsa, customs, and to take a drink or eat on a long trip. Find a secluded corner if you're uncomfortable. I for one was very happy with this app and it is another example of the efficiencies of the United States.

App does work well. Only problem is it's not widely useable even for airports listed as using it. Only works and helps if the airport has a separate line and Automated passport Control(APC) machines. MSP does NOT. So complete waste of time.

What's new

- Updated the layout of the QR code receipts by unifying all travelers into one QR receipt with one QR code.
  - You only need to scan the QR code one time for all travelers in your group.
- Checking in to a flight with only your NEXUS card is not supported in MPC. Make sure all travelers in your group complete the flight check-in process using their passports.
