International travelers can get app to speed Raleigh return


MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) — There is now an easier way to get through customs at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Airport officials told local media a new mobile app will speed the process for the 400 to 600 people who enter the United States at the airport each day.

The app called the “Mobile Passport” will replace the customs declaration card. Raleigh-Durham is the 15th U.S. airport to implement the technology.

The app is only available to U.S. and Canadian citizens.

Raleigh-Durham has international direct flights to London, Paris and Cancun. Those flights often arrive at about the same time of day, creating a backlog at the customs desk.

There is also direct service to Toronto, but those passengers clear customs in Canada.

The app is free and available from iPhone and Android app stores.
