Automated Solutions for Entering the United States

Miami International Airport is using the latest technological advancements to make entering the United States quicker and easier. These automated solutions help travelers expedite the entry process.

Global Entry Program

 

 

Global Entry

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows for expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Participants may enter the United States by using automated kiosks. To sign up for Global Entry, visit the CBP website.

Automated Passport Control

Automated Passport Control (APC) is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection program that expedites the entry process for U.S. citizens. Travelers use a self-service kiosk to submit their Customs declaration form and biographic information. APC is free and does not require pre-registration or membership. It maintains the highest level protection in handling personal information and data. APC’s help reduce wait times, congestion and assist in faster processing. To find out how it works and if you qualify, visit the CBP website.

Mobile Passport Application

Mobile Passport Control enables travelers to submit their passport and Customs declaration information through their smartphone instead of the tradition paper form. The “Mobile Passport” app is free to download and free to use. For more information, visit the Mobile Passport App website

Implementing a key component of the agency’s intelligence-driven, risk-based approach to security, TSA Pre✓™ enhances aviation security by placing more focus on pre-screening individuals who volunteer to participate to expedite the travel experience.
