New Option for Reporting to U.S. Customs & Border Control Announced
U.S. Customs and Border Control has announced that the Reporting Offsite Arrival – Mobile (ROAM) app has been soft-launched as a Pilot Program in Florida. Pleasure boaters will be able to use the ROAM app to report their entry into the United States from the convenience of their personal devices, as opposed to calling the 1-800 number.
Some features of the ROAM app include:
- Streamlined reporting process with reusable traveler and vehicle profiles using login.gov
- Shorter wait times by reporting via the online app from a smartphone instead of calling in
- Remote inspections by CBP Officers using video chat if necessary
