CBP: U.S. Customs and Border Protection

CBP: U.S. Customs and Border Protection protects the borders of the United States from terrorism, human and drug smuggling, illegal migration, and agricultural pests. Video.

Every day, CBP welcomes more than 1.1 million international travelers into United States at its land, sea, and air ports!

Border Patrol officers guard US borders. Here is a photo gallery the Border Patrol at work.

When travellers come through US "Customs," they must show their passport to a Customs officer. Here is a photo gallery of Customs Officers working at an airport. Listen to a conversation between a Customs Officer and a woman re-entering the United States.

CBP has information sheets about what a traveller should "Know Before You Go" outside of the United States.

CBP, ICE, USCIS are departments under the Department of Homeland Security.
