Mobile Passport Control (MPC) is an app designed to expedite the U.S. entry process for U.S. citizens and Canadian citizen visitors. The app allows eligible travelers with a smartphone or tablet to submit their passport, photo and customs declaration form to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) immediately upon landing and prior to inspection. Travelers then proceed to a specific CBP processing lane for their physical passport inspection. As the administrative tasks are performed by the traveler prior to the passport inspection, MPC promises to reduce passport control inspection time and overall wait times.
MPC was initially only available for U.S. citizens and Canadian citizen visitors arriving at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. However, MPC has now been launched in several more U.S. airports, including New York (JFK), Newark, Washington Dulles, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Seattle-Tacoma, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale.
