MSP does not currently have mobile passport. They told me "maybe next week" and sent me to the regular line, vaguely suggesting that it might be due to COVID-19.

Has anyone used mobile passport at MSP during the last two and a half years?

BTW, IIRC early in the pandemic MSP had no international flights. We weren't on the list of airports admitting international passengers.

Question: I've seen some people say that MPC users can show their bar code at the GE line. Others say I can't. Anyone have any practical experience?

My home airport is BOS.

Thanks,

At EWR, they advertise MPC rather prominently even as it’s not an option for those arrivals. And that was one place where MPC used to be faster for me than Global Entry too often has been. At ORD too, MPC use for me is at least currently still relegated to past use since it’s been discontinued.

When CBP decided to muscle out the other MPC app providers at the time by going ahead with its own MPC app, I was getting more opportunities to use MPC than I do since CBP monopolized the MPC app space.

No use of MPC at MSP in at least around 3 years for me.

MPC was not operating for my EWR arrivals this month either. Saw lots of MPC ads around during the walk toward the GE machines this past week too, but there was no MPC in operation there then.

Has it been implemented at SAN yet? Four weeks ago they told me that they had the hardware (he had it on his desk), but that they hadn't supplied the updated software to make it useable. Also, secondary inspections for most arrivals from LHR which delayed entry still further.
