Customs and Border Protection adds mobile passport control

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have expanded support for a new mobile app, Mobile Passport Control (MPC), to expedite customer arrivals at DFW Airport.

The MPC mobile app is currently available for use by US and Canadian citizens, and is the first authorized mobile app for use in entering the United States. With the Mobile Passport app, travelers submit their passport information and customs declaration form to CBP electronically prior to arrival.

Eligible travelers can download the Mobile Passport app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. There are four easy steps for MPC:

In 2014 DFW introduced its leading edge Automated Passport Control (APC) technology, which now boasts 51 kiosks in all. The APC system can accommodate US and Canadian visitors, international travelers from all 38-visa waiver countries. DFW also became the first US airport to begin automatic processing of US Lawful Permanent Residents (citizens with “green cards”).

DFW also introduced Carry E-Z© lines, labeled in green in the International Arrivals Hall, which enable international customers traveling without checked bags to clear the CBP arrival area in one step and move directly to the landside concourse, thereby skipping the baggage claim process.

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport warmly welcomes more than 64 million customers along their journey every year, elevating DFW to a status as one of the most frequently visited superhub airports in the world.
