FAQ / What Is CBP?

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), within
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is
responsible for keeping Americaís borders safe and
secure. On March 1, 2003, CBP combined the inspectional
workforces and broad border authorities of
the U.S. Customs Service with three other agencies:
Immigration and Naturalization Service, Animal and
Plant Health Inspection Service and the Border Patrol.
At CBP, our job is to keep terrorists, their weapons,
and other illegal material or individuals from entering
the United States, while also facilitating the flow of
legitimate trade and travel. For obvious reasons, this
mission is vitally important. We are dedicated to carrying
it out to the best of our abilities.
