CBP Reporting Offsite Arrival - Mobile (ROAM)

The CBP ROAM app is a free mobile application that provides an option for pleasure boaters to report their U.S. entry to CBP via their personal smart device or a tablet located at local businesses to satisfy reporting requirements. In limited areas, travelers arriving in remote locations may also be eligible to use the CBP ROAM app.

Travelers using the CBP ROAM app may use the app to apply to become Verified Travelers (which includes existing LBO, SVRS, and I-68 numbers) and receive expedited processing on future arrivals.

Participants in these programs may phone in their arrival to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) by calling the arrival site telephone number. Unless directed by a CBP officer, participants in these programs do not have to report for an in-person inspection.
