A United States Customs & Border Protection facility is located on the east side of the Airport for international arrivals. With more than 60,000 employees, nationwide, CBP is one of the world's largest law enforcement organizations and is charged with keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. while facilitating lawful international travel and trade.

The City of Fort Lauderdale recently celebrated the completion of another game-changing project with the opening of the new U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE).

Customs Interior

The new $5.7 million complex, which was primarily funded through a $4.9 million grant from the Florida Department of Transportation, will significantly enhance airport operations, optimize speed and efficiency, and dramatically improve service delivery, all of which will greatly benefit the corporate and recreational travelers who arrive at FXE from around the globe.

 

AUTOMATED PASSPORT CONTROL KIOSKS

FXE APC Kiosk

U.S. citizens and Canadians, as well as travelers that reside in one of the Visa Waiver Program countries, are eligible to use the APC kiosks. To use the kiosks, travelers input the same information they would enter on a Customs Declaration form into a kiosk, scan their passport and fingerprints, confirm their flight number, and take a photo. The kiosk will provide a receipt that travelers then present to a CBP officer at the check-out point. The APC kiosks will process travelers who reside at the same address together.

There is no charge to use the new kiosks and pre-registration or membership is not required; however, Visa Waiver Program travelers must have Electronic System for Travel Authorizations (ESTA) approval and have visited the U.S. after 2008.

 

GLOBAL ENTRY KIOSK

Global Entry

Executive Airport is the first General Aviation airport in the country selected by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) to receive a Global Entry kiosk, which is a CBP program that allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers to expedite entrance into the United States upon arrival.

With the kiosk, preapproved travelers no longer need to complete a customs declaration before landing and may skip process lines at checkpoints. Instead, they can simply check-in at the kiosk by scanning their passport or resident card and their fingertips for verification and completing the Customs declaration online. The kiosk will issue the traveler a transaction receipt and, if cleared, he or she can simply exit the facility, saving valuable time.
