Overview of This Information Collection Title: U.S. Customs Declaration. OMB Number: 1651–0009. Form Number: CBP Form 6059B. Current Actions: Extension. Type of Review: Extension (without change). Affected Public: Individuals. Abstract: CBP Form 6059B, Customs Declaration, is used as a standard report of the identity and residence of each person arriving in the United States. This form is also used to declare imported articles to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in accordance with 19 CFR 122.27, 148.12, 148.13, 148.110, 148.111; 31 U.S.C. 5316 and Section 498 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1498). Section 148.13 of the CBP regulations prescribes the use of the CBP Form 6059B when a written declaration is required of a traveler entering the United States. Generally, written declarations are required from travelers arriving by air or sea. Section 148.12 requires verbal declarations from travelers entering the United States, unless an inspecting officer requires a written declaration on CBP Form 6059B. Generally, verbal declarations are required from travelers arriving by land. CBP continues to find ways to improve the entry process through the PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45747 use of mobile technology to ensure it is safe and efficient. To that end, CBP is testing the operational effectiveness of a process which allows travelers to use a mobile app to submit information to CBP prior to arrival. This process, called Mobile Passport Control (MPC) which is a mobile app that allows travelers to self-segment upon arrival into the United States—a process also known as intelligent queuing. The submission of information in advance using MPC allows CBP to direct travelers to the appropriate queue in primary or selfsegment directly to secondary if additional inspection is necessary. The continued testing also helps determine under what circumstances CBP should require a written customs declaration (CBP Form 6059B) and when it is beneficial to admit travelers who make an oral customs declaration during the primary inspection. MPC eliminates the administrative tasks performed by the officer during a traditional inspection and in most cases will eliminate the need for respondents/travelers to fill out a paper declaration. MPC provides a more efficient and secure in person inspection between the CBP Officer and the traveler. Another electronic process that CBP is testing in lieu of the paper CBP Form 6059B is the Automated Passport Control (APC). This is a CBP program that facilitates the entry process for travelers by providing self-service kiosks in CBP’s Primary Inspection area that travelers can use to make their declaration. Both APC and MPC allow an electronic method for travelers to answer the questions that appear on CBP Form 6059B without filling out a paper form.

Overview of This Information Collection

    Title: U.S. Customs Declaration.

    Abstract: CBP Form 6059B, Customs Declaration, is used as a 
standard report of the identity and residence of each person arriving 
in the United States. This form is also used to declare imported 
articles to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in accordance with 
19 CFR 122.27, 148.12, 148.13, 148.110, 148.111; 31 U.S.C. 5316 and 
Section 498 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1498).
    Section 148.13 of the CBP regulations prescribes the use of the CBP 
Form 6059B when a written declaration is required of a traveler 
entering the United States. Generally, written declarations are 
required from travelers arriving by air or sea. Section 148.12 requires 
verbal declarations from travelers entering the United States, unless 
an inspecting officer requires a written declaration on CBP Form 6059B. 
Generally, verbal declarations are required from travelers arriving by 
land.
    CBP continues to find ways to improve the entry process through the 
use of mobile technology to ensure it is safe and efficient. To that 
end, CBP is testing the operational effectiveness of a process which 
allows travelers to use a mobile app to submit information to CBP prior 
to arrival. This process, called Mobile Passport Control (MPC) which is 
a mobile app that allows travelers to self-segment upon arrival into 
the United States--a process also known as intelligent queuing. The 
submission of information in advance using MPC allows CBP to direct 
travelers to the appropriate queue in primary or self-segment directly 
to secondary if additional inspection is necessary. The continued 
testing also helps determine under what circumstances CBP should
