CUSTOMS TO PHASE OUT DECLARATION FORM AND TRAFFIC LIGHT LOTTERY New procedures to simplify process for travelers entering Mexico On a pilot program, Terminal 1 of Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and Cancun International Airport will eliminate the use of traffic lights and customs declaration for passengers arriving from overseas. The use of traffic lights and declaration of goods is replaced by the scanning of baggage through X-rays, in addition to performing risk analysis by personnel of the tax office. Both processes are unobtrusive for the passenger, said the Customs Administrator, Gerardo Suรกrez. This pilot study has already been implemented for a few weeks in Terminal 2 of AICM and it has proved that it makes for a faster, trouble-free arrival documentation. The traditional model averaged about 25 minutes, but now it only takes about three minutes. It is expected that the pilot program becomes a permanent procedure by the end of 2017.
