Mobile passport control app expedites international travelers arriving through Silicon Valley's airport

Eligible travelers arriving at Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) can now use the free Mobile Passport Control (MPC) app for expedited security. MPC is the first authorized app to expedite eligible travelers arriving in the USA.

Travelers submit their passport information and customs declaration form to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) via a smartphone or tablet app before arriving at the participating airport. MPC currently offers US citizens and Canadian visitors a more secure and efficient in-person inspection between the CBP officer and the traveler upon arrival in the USA.

The app does not require pre-approval, is free to use and does not collect any new information from travelers. Travelers opting to use the app will no longer have to complete a paper customs declaration form, resulting in shorter wait times, less congestion and faster processing.

“I expect the Mobile Passport Control app will be warmly received and highly utilized by Silicon Valley travelers as they have become familiar with the high-tech services and conveniences being offered at SJC,” director of aviation Kim Becker said. “The app is particularly important for SJC this summer and beyond as we continue to add international airlines and destinations, resulting in more travelers arriving through our International Arrivals facility.”
