Mobile Passport

Is Mobile Passport different from Global Entry?

Global Entry is a "Trusted Traveler" program that requires a background check and a yearly fee. If you have Global Entry it greatly speeds up your customs experience, but you still have to fill out the re-entry questionnaire. Since Mobile Passport expedites the questionnaire portion, it would complement Global Entry well, making your customs transit that much faster.

Does Mobile Passport Control require Wi-Fi?

Yes, Mobile Passport requires a Wi-Fi connection to be fully functional. You will be able to enter passport information and answer the Customs and Border Protection questions while offline, but you will need Wi-Fi to submit them. After your plane lands you can use its Wi-Fi if available, or wait to use the airport's Wi-Fi so you can get your QR code receipt before you reach the customs area.
