U.S. CBP expands Mobile Passport Control to Detroit Metro Airport “enhancing the international travel experience”


U.S. Customs and Border Protection has expanded Mobile Passport Control to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, enhancing CX and streamlining traveller’s entry process into the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced today that Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is the latest location to allow U.S. citizens and select non-U.S. travellers to use Mobile Passport Control (MPC) to streamline entry into the United States.

“Mobile Passport Control is an important step in enhancing the international travel experience and offers travellers additional options to expedite their entry into the U.S.,” said Director of Field Operations Marty C. Raybon. “The use of MPC streamlines the traveller’s entry process into the United States by reducing passport control inspection time and overall wait time.”

Mobile Passport Control allows eligible travellers to submit their travel document, photo, and customs declaration information through a free, secure app on their smartphone or other mobile device. As a result, travellers may experience shorter wait times, less congestion and efficient processing. Use of MPC does not require pre-approval.

The MPC mobile app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. After downloading the app, users will be prompted to create a profile with their passport information any time prior to arriving in a CBP facility. Up to 12 profiles can be created for family members and a single household can submit a single MPC transaction.

Upon arrival at participating U.S. or Preclearance locations, travellers can take a selfie for every member of the traveling group and submit their information to CBP through the MPC app without completing a paper form.
