Region X Port of Entry Tour - JFK

When: May 11, 2016
Where: New York Port Authority
Cost: $50.00
Registration: CLOSED

Join us for an intimate tour of U.S. Customs & Border Protection facilities on May 11 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 19 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.

Because each participant must have their information vetted prior to the tour, there will not be on-site registration and we cannot add participants after the registration period.
