CBP FOIA Section 508 Accessibility Notice


DHS FOIA is moving to a NEW system which will allow us to process records faster. There may be a temporary delay in response to your request while launching the new system. Requesters can use the FOIA SecureRelease portal to submit requests.  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.
