Customs & Border Protection Summer Travel Tips

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations expects heavier than usual border traffic amid the summer season due to eased travel restrictions and offers some helpful tips for those entering the United States by air, land, or sea.

Ensure travel documents are up to date and readily available. Current documentary requirements for U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents, and international visitors can be found here.

  • International visitors arriving from a foreign country by air, land port of entry, or ferry terminal will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This requirement does not apply to U.S. citizens or U.S. lawful permanent residents.
  • Know how much currency you are carrying and be prepared to report it to CBP. The FinCEN Form 105 is required for persons who are transporting or mailing currency or monetary instruments over $10,000 USD into or out of the United States and can be completed online or in person.
  • Declare all goods entering the United States with you. Certain items may be restricted, prohibited or subject to tax or duty.  
  • Don’t pack a pest. Travelers entering the United States must declare all agricultural products. Agriculture specialists will examine your items to be sure they meet entry requirements and do not harbor harmful foreign pests or diseases.
