Free “Mobile Passport” App Offers Quick Way Through Customs at Some U.S. Airports

This looks like a worthy successor to Global Entry, which costs $100 plus a personal interview. This Mobile Passport app is free and does not require an interview.

Before boarding the plane for your flight to the U.S., you need to have the app loaded onto your smartphone and input “New Trip” information about your trip. Upon landing, log in to receive a barcode good for entry for the next 4 hours.

Mobile Passport is available for both iPhone and Android operating systems.

While the number of U.S. airports currently utilizing Mobile Passport is currently limited, I anticipate that it will grow.
