Still in the pilot stage, CBP- Custom & Border Patrol has launched it’s new IOS & Android application ROAM. This new program allows pleasure boaters will be able to use the ROAM app to report their entry into the United States from the convenience of their personal devices, as opposed to calling the 1-800 number.
Some features of the ROAM app include:
· Streamlined reporting process with reusable traveler and vehicle profiles using login.gov
· Shorter wait times by reporting via the online app from a smartphone instead of calling in
· Remote inspections by CBP Officers using video chat if necessary
Download ROAM on your Android
device. Detailed instructions on how to install and use the app are attached for your reference.
