Travelling to the United States from Dublin Airport and Shannon Airport just got even easier with the launch of Mobile Passport Control (MPC) at US CBP pre-clearance in Terminal 2 used by over 1 million per year. MPC allows travellers to complete a part of their immigration process before presenting at our pre-clearance facility, cutting wait times even further.

The CBP Mobile Passport Control App is a free application that can be downloaded from the Apple App store and Google Play and is currently available for eligible travellers to use upon arrival at MPC approved sites.

After downloading the MPC Application from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, eligible travellers will be prompted to create a profile with their passport or LPR card information. Upon arrival at eligible Preclearance locations users must select their mode of entry in the application as “Preclearance” before selecting their departing Preclearance Port of Entry.

MPC allows eligible travellers to submit their travel document, photo, and customs declaration information through a free, secure app on their smartphone or other mobile device.

The use of MPC streamlines the traveller’s entry process into the United States by reducing passport control inspection time and overall wait time. Use of MPC does not require pre-approval and will no longer have to complete a paper form and may be provided a designated queue. Once the traveller submits their transaction through the app, travellers will then bring their physical passport to a CBP officer to finalize their inspection for entry into the United States.
