CBP is in Temporary Location at TUS for Passenger Processing of General Aviation Aircraft
Construction is underway on a new TUS location for Customs and Border Protection at the base of the now decommissioned former air traffic control tower. General aviation aircraft are temporarily being processed at a facility on the airfield side of the building. As a guide, pilots will find the new location at the base of the tower with T-U-C-S-O-N spelled out down two of its sides.
Hours: 7 a.m.-8 p.m. daily (additional hours are available with advance notice)
Please note the temporary passenger processing location in the photo above.
Inbound pilots should give notice by contacting CBP at (520) 799-8348 before 8 p.m. the preceding weekday of their planned arrival and provide the following information:
- Aircraft registration number.
- Name of pilot in command.
- Place of last departure.
- Estimated time and location of border crossing.
- Intention to make TUS the airport of first landing in the U.S.
