Miami International (MIA) is now offering the convenience of Mobile Passport Control in its airport app experience. Visitors arriving at MIA can now use the airport’s official app to submit details to U.S. Customs and Border Protection faster.
“The goal of our mobile app has always been to put as many services as possible in the palm of the traveler’s hand,” said Emilio González, Miami-Dade aviation director. “Now, with the help of SITA’s innovative technology, in addition to easily finding your way to all you need at MIA, North American passengers can now also breeze through passport control with the same customer-friendly travel app.”
Developed by global air transport IT provider SITA and certified by US CBP, Mobile Passport Control speeds up the entry process into the United States. It enables eligible travelers to use an airport or airline’s app on their mobile device to submit their passport information and answer CBP inspection-related questions prior to CBP inspection. The convenient service does not require pre-approval and is free to use.
“We are very pleased to be a technology partner with MIA as they become the first to incorporate the convenience of US CBP Mobile Passport Control into their airport application,” said Randy Pizzi, SITA president. “Passenger satisfaction increases when technology solutions, like SITA’s, make it easy for passengers to manage their journey using just one convenient application on their own smartphone or tablet.”
