Traveling through LAX is about to get a little easier thanks to a new app designed to speed up the time it takes to get through customs. Carlos Martell with Customs and Border Protection says the app, called Mobile Passport, can help speed up the process for passengers.
"It will allow eligible travelers to submit their passport and customs declaration to CBP via smartphone or tablet prior to arriving," Martell said.
Martell says the app will replace the customs sheet travelers must fill out when arriving to the United States. So far, the program is only avaliable to American and Canadian citizens, but officials say it will eventually roll out to other countries.
The app is free for iOS and Android operating systems and can be found in the app store here.
