SJC Incorporates Mobile Passport Control

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection-approved Mobile Passport Control app is now available to eligible travelers arriving at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International (SJC), the airport announced.

Travelers submit their passport information and customs declaration form to CBP via a smartphone or tablet app before arriving at the airport. The app is free, does not require pre-approval and does not collect any new information from travelers. Travelers using the app do not have to complete a 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 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.”

The app was developed in partnership with CBP, by Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) and their technical partners.
