U.S. Customs Device Inspections

U.S. Customs officials are authorized to search or retain electronic devices to look for violation of export control regulations, as well as other laws and regulations.

  • Consider taking a minimal device equipped with only ordinary, recognizable software and minimal data so your delay is minimal and the consequence of a loss less disruptive.
