U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is the agency responsible for admitting individuals into this country. CBP has just issued a “Know Before You Go” checklist reminding international travelers to the United States, including those returning to this country, what to do to ensure smooth and efficient processing at our ports of entry. This travel checklist reads as follows:
- Have all the required travel documents for the country you are visiting, as well as approved and valid identification for re-entry to the United States. Passports are required for air travel. Visit www.travel.state.gov for country-specific information.
- For citizens of Visa Waiver Program countries, make sure that you have an approved Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding. For those traveling on a visa, have a completed I-94 form when approaching CBP processing.
