New US Customs & Border Protection App for boaters returning from the Bahamas!

Apr 10, 2018

The official ROAM (Reporting Offsite Arrival - Mobile) App (formerly OARS) from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), allows boaters that are not enrolled in the I-68 or Nexus Programs, to present themselves for face-to-face inspection with a CBP Officer using Video Chat, for entry into the United States.

Disclaimer: This is a pilot version only for use in limited areas. Contact your local Port of Entry for guidance.

Create a Trip by adding Travelers, the Vessel or Vehicle you are traveling in, your location and contact information.

After you submit a Trip, you will receive a Push Notification on your device to start a Video Chat with a CBP Officer, to finish reporting your entry into the United States.
