The Automated Passport Control program is currently available for US and Canadian passport holders and eligible visitors from the Visa Waiver Program. All other customers must be processed by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer located in a booth.
Automated Passport Control helps travellers move more quickly through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance inspection process by allowing entry of passport information at a self-service kiosk. Users respond to a set of simple questions, take a photo and then are issued a receipt that they present to a CBP Officer for a final inspection before completing the process. No pre-registration is necessary and there is no fee involved in participation.
