Enhanced Guest Services
Mobile Passport Control App: Port Everglades is the first and only seaport in the United States to adopt the new U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)-approved Mobile Passport Control (MPC) Smartphone program for cruise ship travel. This first-of-its-kind app, developed by Airside Mobile and Airports Council International-North America in partnership with CBP, has been in use at a number of airports across the country, including Broward County's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). The app allows U.S. citizens with a valid passport and Canadian citizens with both a valid Canadian passport and B1 or B2 visa status, to complete their Customs declaration upon debark on their smart phones or mobile devices, expediting their clearance process.
