DETROIT — U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Field Operations encourages travelers planning trips to the United States via Michigan border crossings to “Know Before You Go” ahead of an anticipated busy springtime travel season. 

Being prepared will help minimize delays at ports of entry. Advisories and border wait times, current documentary requirements, information on prohibited items, and more can be found here

 Non-U.S. travelers are encouraged to apply for their I-94 online or via the CBP One mobile app, available on both the Apple app store and Google Play.
