In Brief

Travelers with a US passport can move more quickly through Chicago's hub using automated booths instead of filling out declaration cards.

Chicago O’Hare airport will be the first U.S. airport to use the Automated Passport Control computer program come July 1st. US passport holders will no longer need to fill out declaration cards when passing through customs. They only need to go through the self-service kiosks as part of the border clearance process.

The automated kiosks has a touch screen display and will require passengers to answer a series of questions. Passengers will be issued a receipt, which they need to present to a Customs and Border Protection Officer along with their U.S. passport and boarding pass for verification.
