JFK, Newark Airports Adopt CBP Mobile Passport Control App

John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City and Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey have adopted the U.S. Customs and Border Protection‘s Mobile Passport Control app designed to help submit their customs declaration forms and passport information digitally.

The free-to-use app does not collect new information sent by the user to CBP and aims to eliminate the need for paper-based customs declaration forms, CBP said Friday.

Thomas Bosco, Port Authority Aviation director, said the MPC aims to help expedite international travelers’ entry processes and addresses large numbers of trade and travel across airports.

“We are pleased that Mobile Passport is expanding to John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport as a valuable tool to help expedite eligible travelers entering the United States,” said Kevin Burke, Airports Council International-North America president and CEO.
