A network outage is reportedly affecting US Customs and Border Protection computers at airports across the US on Friday afternoon (local time), August 16. Many airports have resorted to processing passengers manually, including New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The cause of the technical issue was not immediately reported.
Significant delays in customs processing are to be expected for travelers arriving in the US on international flights over the coming hours. Major congestion is to be anticipated at airports nationwide as the network outage continues.
Individuals traveling on international flights to the US are advised to monitor developments, prepare for delays at customs, and contact your airline for up-to-date information.
