Why I Love Mobile Passport

Intro


As someone who travels a lot, Mobile Passport has saved me hours, if not days of standing in line at immigration. I wanted to write a quick extract about how it works for those looking to return to the USA quickly.


What Is Mobile Passport?


Mobile Passport is the closest thing to Global Entry, and it does not require enrollment.


Mobile Passport

Mobile Passport is an app that works on IOS or Android. Head over to the Google Play Store or the App Store if you have an iPhone and hit download. I give you permission to pause this post to do so😉.


Once you have downloaded the app, input your information and save it. For example, when I first downloaded it, I put in my passport and personal details. The reason for doing so is that when you go to fill out an online form, it is already saved.


How Does It Work?


Thankfully, in this generation, we get Data everywhere we go. Head over to the app once you land at the airport where you are arriving. When you are in the app, create a new form and fill out the 6 question form (takes about 1 minute).



When finished, click submit, and you will see a timer that lasts for 4 hours. Head over to the Mobile Passport line which usually has very few individuals.


The agent won't ask you and questions, minus where you are coming from. None of this interrogation that you usually get when going through passport control.


That's it, it's so simple and everyone should start doing this (not everyone because then it wouldn't be so quick).


This processed has saved me multiple times, the first being in Miami where instead of waiting 45 minutes I was through immigration in under 2 minutes. Another instance that comes to mind is LAX, Tom Bradley can be a nightmare, but not with Mobile Passport.


I hope this helped. Have a wonderful day!
