Complete Travel History Summaries Now Available to Foreign Nationals Via U.S. Customs and Border Protection Website


On May 1, 2014, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a new website which now offers foreign nationals access to their complete travel history, including dates of entries and exits from the United States, and ports of entry. The CBP website offers travel summaries dating back five years from the request date. By entering required name, date of birth and passport information on the website, individuals can electronically access their five year travel history. Previously, individuals who needed travel history records would need to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which could take several months to be processed. Now, any individuals with pending FOIA requests can cancel such requests and immediately access their travel history information online.
