Freedom of Information Act

Change is underway at FOIA!

DHS FOIA is moving to a NEW system which will allow us to process records faster.  We expect to begin moving to the system in June 2022.  There may be a temporary delay in response to your request while launching the new system.  Learn more about the change here.

Welcome to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) page.  FOIA is the law that gives any person access, with certain exemptions, to information about the functions, procedures, policies, decisions, and operations of federal agencies.
