Used the new customs kiosks at ATL

Jump to last reply

How long have the kiosks been in place that replace the customs forms for US citizens?

We were apprehensive when no forms were distributed on the plane and we saw the rows of kiosks before Immigration. However, the line moved at the speed of the Immigration officers, so no hold up there despite our unfamiliarity with the machine and the process. Spotting an open machine because of the layout did slow the line. It took several tries to get the kiosk to read my passport, but it read my husband's on first try Then lining up face for photo took a short while after the long flight when my eyes don't focus so well.

It doesn't save on paper since it prints out receipt to give to customs and it didn't speed the line at the customs exit, but it does create a database.
