Mobile Passport Control App

Effective Feb. 1, 2022, the U.S Gov't 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.

  • Sr 5/5

    By riubo
    Really fast service
  • Sailed through customs 5/5

    By crcrpd
    This app made it easy to skip the line and go right to the front.
  • Not available today at DFW 1/5

    By planobmw
    Why not update the user if the service is not available? Right?
  • O’Hare does not accept it anymore 1/5

    By Clb9396
    The CBP site and the mobile pass app both say you can use it at O’Hare but the airport doesn’t accept it. Update your website! I missed a connection because of bad info on this app
  • No longer recognized at jfk terminal 1 1/5

    By Mrfluffymd
    These star reviews must be old. Mobile passport used to be a joy but the customs agents at JFK act like they don’t know what you are talking about and there is no longer official signage or a designated line. You have to stand in the regular line. For hours. Hopefully this will work again at some point but beware that for now it doesn’t.
  • The stupidest name ever 3/5

    By AmnonG
    Mobile passport app called by an acronym - hard to remember. Would be much more human friendly to have passport in the name or show
  • Works but be careful if you scan passport overseas 4/5

    By too_many_crashes
    Definitely streamlines entry in the US but if you scan your passports overseas birthdates and passport expiration dates are one off!!!!!!!!
  • Unclear directions. Can’t go back 2/5

    By sheepdoc13

  • App ok service in Miami 2/5

    By srps1967
    Easy to use and configure. But service at Miami airport terminal D does not and lines are huge!
  • Green cards ?? 3/5

    By mrs score
    Unfortunately it does not accept green cards
  • Passport info keeps changing 4/5

    By bvahl
    Every time I use this app, I have to re-edit info in our passports - ie bday and expiration are off by one day. Weird.
  • Time Saver 5/5

    By doyouwantmetoreviewornot
    Helped us skip a 4-5 hour line at customs :)
  • Philadelphia 5/5

    By sea quinn
    The agents were extremely helpful with operating the app.
  • Simplifies getting through immigration and customs. 5/5

    By tripete99
    Why wait in line when you can zip through an electronic kiosk.
  • Very impressed 5/5

    By StreetcarGuy
    Set up was a snap and our arrival at DFW using this app saved us at least 20 mins by our estimate. Thanks for creating such an efficient app and system!
  • Useless unless agents take it 1/5

    By Solteq
    Have tried to use at JFK and SMF and agents just rolled their eyes and asked me for my passport.
  • Really useful app 5/5

    By Globetrotting app reviewer
    MPC is much better than the older “mobile passport” app - which forced a freemium model and kept erasing the passport details. I’m glad CBP took ownership of the app and made it truly free and useful - I travel a lot, and the app saves lots of time coming in - and is a much better alternative to Global Entry
  • Easy to use. 5/5

    By Kdchad
    Very helpful
  • Mobile passport verification tool 5/5

    By bls1010
    Works fantastic - saves 60 min wait time at US Customs
  • Game Changer 5/5

    By Johnny Rocket London
    Arrived at JFK to what looked like a 2hr wait. Downloaded app and was out in 5min no joke. Even faster than Global Entry and free.
  • Perfection! 5/5

    By le baulois
    First off, read the description about the app carefully. You can’t submit your info more than four hours before you arrive in the US. You will still need to present your US passport to the CBP agent. The system works is you pay attention to details. Flew back to Dulles Airport from the Caribbean in June using the MPC app. Had initial issues with connecting to CBP server but it worked before we board the shuttle to the terminal. Hundreds of people in regular line. Less than 10 people in the MPC line! Out of the airport and in a taxi in less 45 minutes after landing.
  • No longer working at Seattle 1/5

    By Goel Family
    After the new international arrival terminal opened at Seattle they are no longer accepting mobile passport. How is that progress?
  • Doesn’t work in Orlando 1/5

    By Alkusa
    Nice app , unfortunately is not accepted in Orlando FL airport , it says on CBP airport list that MCO is part of mobile passport control, but when you arrive there is no option for it
  • MPC not accepted at airports listed 3/5

    By Mimi8495
    App works fine But I was denied use of MPC at Newark, Chicago, Atlanta, and Orlando within the past 6 months. Was directed to the normal customs line. Was told in Atlanta they do not accept it anymore.
  • Hard to scan passport with iPad 5/5

    By 0Ld m&n
    The movement of the passport and the image on the screen on an iPad do not seem to be coordinated. I found it very difficult to place our passport image pages into the screen. Fortunately with multiple attempts the program seemed to acquire all the information that it needed. The information was correct. I could not verify the images and may have my wife’s Face ID for my information on our joint Mobile Passport Control record.
  • Very Easy To Use 5/5

    By orejitaylulu
    Very easy to use and straightforward
  • Review 5/5

    By CaigoAlla
    Your application is just great!
  • Not accepted at Denver!! 1/5

    By Dgolden 811
    MPC is not accepted in Denver. Before wasting your time with this app confirm that it is currently used at your destination airport—otherwise it’s a maddening waste of time
  • The best app ever 5/5

    By mbhaynes
    Wow this was such a time saver. Easy to use and we just sailed thru customs. Honestly why spend the money for global entry MPC is just as good
  • Very useful 5/5

    By he ghejrbeb
    I used the app once coming back from Mexico and went straight to the front of the line which was even shorter than the global entry line.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Highlander SK
    Very simple … highly recommend it.
  • Well done CBP! 5/5

    By mattv123
    The passport scanning and OCR is top notch
  • Would not submit after Multiple attempts 1/5

    By Nail28
    Was able to submit the form two days after I needed it! Made approximately 20 attempts to submit the form once I had landed in Atlanta. I had good connections once landed. Is the server on the receiving end overloaded or is there a problem with the application itself? Then I did not see a location in Atlanta to use this app. Perhaps I needed to go through global entry once the form actually submitted?
  • Mobile Process 5/5

    By Cancun trup
    Thank you for this app! This saved my entire family hours waiting in line to get through customs. Easy to use.
  • Traveler great app 5/5

  • No ports would upload, unable to use 1/5

    By BJ Fresh Live
    Very suspicious. Uploaded passport data and was unable to get past that. Not useful.
  • Mixed Bag 3/5

    By teknopasto
    Doesn’t work at O’Hare.
  • Not Accepted at ORD 1/5

    By Unfortunate Downhill Slide...
    On entry to ORD immigration, I showed the completed CBP app form to the bureaucrat. She just sneered and said, “We haven’t used that app since 2018… Fill out the paper immigration slip and get into line”. Was she just the normal lazy bureaucrat, or is this correct? Why is the app even still available if it is not accepted at a high volume airport like Chicago, for Pete’s sake?!
  • Amazing 5/5

    By cpayne102
    A friend told me about this app and I forgot to download it. Once my plane landed at DFW I downloaded it and did the quick steps. Then at customs we bypassed hundreds of people!
  • Fast and easy to use 5/5

    By Glen719
    The camera grabs and auto types all the passport info into the forms.... Super easy...
  • Pretty slick 5/5

    By TunaFish#5
    Scanned all the passports for the family and did the customs form lickety split. Just waiting in line now, so that they can scan the info from my phone. The data has a 4-hour timeout, so I hope we don't get to see what happens if we hit the timeout!
  • Pointless 1/5

    By Germanhc
    In EWR the MPC app and the regular line are one and the same. Saves you exactly zero time. Don’t bother with it if EWR is your hub.
  • Good 5/5

  • Not accepted at Newark 1/5

    By Époisses
    I tried the app for the first time at Newark. Instead of breezing through, I had to wait in the old-school “analog” line. When I asked why, I was told that they do not accept digital passports at Newark, despite being listed by the app as an airport that does. The reason given was that the app’s technology is out of date. I guess waiting in line to show your physical passport is more advanced than the app. Who knew?
  • Amazing! 5/5

    By Rodd PDJ
    This is an amazing app to use if you don’t have Global Entry. Got through customs in 5 min! Everything is easy to use in the app.
