Automated kiosk makes the Customs process easier

Automated kiosk makes the Customs process easier

Sara Raney, Senior Travel Advisor - Alaska and Antarctica Specialist

The US Department of Homeland Security has been installing automated kiosks in a few of the major airports to make passing through customs easier.

If you are arriving on international flights at participating airports, such as Orlando International, you will no longer be given paper forms to fill out by hand and give to Customs officials. Now you will scan your passport at the kiosk, have your picture taken, and answer a series of questions. You will get a receipt showing your identity, flight information, etc. You will give this to the Customs agent.

At the present time 21 airports have kiosks.

If you are traveling in one of my groups, as a professional Certified Tour Manager I will be there to help you with this.
