Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)


Requesters can use the FOIA SecureRelease portal to submit requests directly to U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Requests can also be sent in the physical mail to 90 K ST NE MS 1181, Washington DC 20229. We encourage you to submit your request through the DHS Portal.  Any requests sent to CBP in the physical mail will need to be manually entered by staff and will divert resources away from processing records.

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.
