Port Everglades has launched the new U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) approved Mobile Passport Control, the first U.S. cruise port to use the new Smartphone technology. The program is currently in use at a number of airports across the country, including Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
How it works
- Guests download the Mobile Passport Control app from iOS or Google Play
- Fill out their passport information and scan their photo
- Answer a series of declaration questions
- Submit the form within four hours of disembarking the cruise
Forms are Still Available
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Declaration Form will still be delivered to your stateroom. Using the app is completely optional.
Port Everglades has participated in CBP’s Global Entry program since summer 2015, giving preferential processing to those guests who are Global Entry card holders. Port Everglades also recently completed pilot testing of the Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks in two of its cruise terminals, another CBP initiative to streamline the traveler inspection process.
Harmony of the Seas was one of the first ships to use the program, followed by Holland America’s Koningsdam.
