In addition to submitting a report of arrival, pleasure boaters who are not currently enrolled in a Trusted Traveler Program, Local Boater Option, or I-68 program who are currently required to report in person may be eligible for a video inspection.

Disclaimer: This is a pilot version only for use in limited areas. Contact your local Port of Entry for guidance.

    Does not work on Google Pixel 5. Keeps asking for location services to be turned on, even though they are on.

    I downloaded the wrong app I needed the CBP ONE but its not available in my country. I know that the CBP ONE can be used to verify identity of asylum seekers and will go a long way to stopping the human misery caused by the criminals who like to traffic human beings as if they were little more than a create of bananas

    Updated 24 Jun. The recent update seems to have fixed the location bug. This is a useful and welcome system and I'm thankful that it's working again. (Review from before update:Completely defective. Used to work on Android 8 but will not access location on Pie. Says access to location is denied, which it is most definitely not. CBP people don't really know how the app works. Today I was asked about a float plan, a festure discontinued a year ago. A nice try, I guess.)

    This app is full of bugs. The app quits when I try to enter data in expiry date field. It won’t allow me to add more than one traveler. And the scanner is very fussy and won't work most of the time. Very frustrating and now I am not sure I will be able to travel to the States this coming weekend. My phone is an Android 4.4.2 model SM-G386W. I downloaded the app yesterday, June 26. I believe I have the newest version available.

    There are huge issues with the app relating to reentry into the United States, if you are using the Android version this app. If so, you may not be able to get past the Location not found, notification. This will delay your entry by hours if not days if you enter on the weekend or during non-prime time hours when you will need to call It would seem that during the development of the product, the managers asked,"how does the Android app work"? That's when the developers said, "oh yeah, hmmm".

    Good idea but poorly executed. The app states it is beta and it certainly shows. The initial setup was quite painful. I almost uninstalled it and walked away. Once the setup is complete it was throwing permission errors which so many others have complained about. But all and all it seems to do what it supposed to do. My last complaint. The app has no shutdown option. It hijacks the entire screen and it's nearly impossible to shut it down with a reboot of the phone. Update: I just noticed it won't save passport issue dates in the travelers information.

    Junk! Worked great in summer and fall of 2018. now it crashes every time even after reinstalling the app. 2/4/19 update: followed directions to clear cache and reinstall. now i continually get an error message that says i need to enable location even though it is enabled on the app. can't back out of the error. un- usable.

    Doesn't seem like the app was well thought out or tested. The text describing password requirements did not correctly describe that a strong password was needed. An email with confirmation link is sent, a text with one time code is then sent, and a guid-like security code is finally sent to register the device. The text control to enter the security code is very buggy, cursor jumped all around. And finally, you gotta save the code if you ever need to register another device. Haven't tried to report in yet, but, for the time being, I am saving the call in number.

    Worked for me with no problems on a re-entry from the Bahamas by boat. Once the original setup questions were answered (names, IDs, vessel info), which I did before, the actual reporting of arrival went very fast: what vessel, what passengers (pick from the list) where did you arrive, where did you come from, 3 customs-related questions...please wait...and: welcome home! Total time for reporting the arrival, maybe 2 minutes. I especially like the feature of login.gov to receive the 2 Factor Authentication message by VOIP voice phone number, which made it possible for me to do the setup while abroad. The app does not appear to save the passport expiration date, but either it saves it where the user can't see it, or CBP doesn't care. UPDATE 8/9/2019: New release 2.7.10 fails with "not authorized" after authentication with LOGIN.GOV. Credentials are correct as I can go direct to LOGIN.GOV website and log in OK. Appears to be a problem with the handoff between LOGIN.GOV and the app. UPDATE 8/16/2019 above-referenced problem seems to be fixed
