Join us for an intimate tour of U.S. Customs & Border Protection facilities on April 10 at JFK Airport, one of the busiest air ports of entry in the region. The tour includes overviews of the New York Field Office, followed by a walk through of primary and secondary inspection. The tour is limited to 20 and includes transportation. Participants must bring government issued ID and will have to be vetted in advance of the tour.

Participants will be picked up at NY Port Authority on the corner of 41st Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan at 11:45 a.m. The tour at JFK airport will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. A shuttle will be provided to transport participants to and from the airport.
