Cruise passengers can now ditch long customs lines using an app at this South Florida port

A mobile app designed to speed travelers’ entry into the U.S. can now be used at Port Everglades — making the Fort Lauderdale seaport the first in the nation to offer the service.

The app, Mobile Passport Control, is available for iPhone and Android devices, and is in use at airports throughout the U.S., including Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Miami International Airport. Cruise passengers at Port Everglades can use it beginning today, the port said in a news release.

The app’s availability for travelers comes on the eve of the world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, taking up residence at Port Everglades.

Here’s how the app works, according to its website:

• Travelers download the app and complete a profile for themselves. They also can add profiles for family members. That information is encrypted and shared only with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

• Before leaving the cruise ship, the user enters the information they would have written on a customs form into the app by answering a few questions.

• The app generates a barcode, which the user can take to a specific Mobile Passport Control office after leaving the ship. A customs officer will scan the barcode, and the traveler will be able to head on their way.

In addition to the app, Port Everglades also recently finished testing Automated Passport Control kiosks in its cruise terminals. Similar to the way the app works, travelers can use the kiosks to fill out their biographical information and customs declarations before heading to a customs line.

“Through our partnership with Port Everglades, we have worked together to bring new technology and procedures to the cruise ship processing environment,” Jorge Roig, Customs port director at Port Everglades, said in a news release. “The addition of the Mobile Passport App and Automated Passport Control Kiosk to the cruise ship environment will bring added benefits to all those that utilize the program and will assist CBP in the completion of its mission of keeping maritime travel safe.”

Floridians: It’s time to pay for your trip on Florida’s Turnpike again.

As Florida continues to clean up in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Gov. Rick Scott’s office said Monday that all tolls throughout the state have been reinstated.

Scott suspended tolls for the storm beginning Wednesday, as evacuation orders were issued from Palm Beach County north along Florida’s east coast.

The issue first was given Wednesday to suspend tolls on State Road 528, the Beachline, to assist with Brevard County’s mandatory evacuation. That highway saw delays Wednesday and Thursday as thousands of people left their homes and headed inland.

Later Wednesday, Scott expanded his order to included all toll roads in Florida. Tolls continued to be free until Sunday night.

Hurricane Matthew muddies plans for some cruise lines

Port restrictions in effect because of Hurricane Matthew have prompted itinerary adjustments for several cruise lines, AAA said Wednesday in a news release.

The Coast Guard has set port condition “Yankee” for all ports from Miami north to Jacksonville. Condition Yankee means no vessels may enter or remain in the port without the Coast Guard’s approval.

» COMPLETE LIST OF SHELTERS, EMERGENCY RESOURCES

The Grand Celebration cruise ship, which sails out of the Port of Palm Beach, had to receive Coast Guard approval to drop off its load of passengers Wednesday morning after the Coast Guard set the Palm Beach port’s condition to Yankee at 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Port of Palm Beach spokeswoman Tara Monks said there were about 500 passengers on board the ship.

» The latest on how Matthew is affecting flights in South Florida

“If (the ship) had happened to ask to stay, it would be up to the Coast Guard,” Monks said.

Cruise ships along Florida’s east coast are facing the same dilemma, AAA said, of whether to head out to calm seas or find a different port.

“Cruise line officials have already adjusted itineraries to avoid island-destinations impacted by the hurricane, but these port closures makes returning home very tricky,” AAA director of field travel support Vicky Evans said in a news release.

Cruise lines affected by Matthew include Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Disney, MSC, Norwegian and Princess, AAA said.

Three ships scheduled to return to port Thursday now will return Friday: the Empress of the Seas and Carnival Sensation, out of Port Miami; and the Carnival Victory out of Port Canaveral.

Evans advises travelers to reach out to their cruise lines to see if their trips will be affected by the storm.

As Floridians prepare for possible mandatory evacuation orders for Hurricane Matthew, one question may come to mind: Will you have to pay tolls on Florida’s Turnpike before, during and after the storm?

Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday that he has authorized the Florida Department of Transportation to suspend tolls in counties where there are evacuation orders issued.

COMPLETE LIST OF SHELTERS, EMERGENCY RESOURCES

Wednesday evening, Scott’s office issued an update saying this now includes the entire Florida’s Turnpike, Alligator Alley and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority.

Tolls on Florida’s Beachline — State Road 528 — from Brevard County to Orlando already had been suspended because of a mandatory evacuation order in Brevard County earlier in the day, Scott said.

“Protecting life and moving people to safety remains our top priority and today I directed the Florida Department of Transportation to suspend tolls as needed to keep traffic flowing,” Scott said in a news release. “If there is an evacuation order in a county, all tolls will be suspended in that county.”

The Florida Department of Transportation is keeping track of traffic counters in South and Central Florida as it prepares for the storm’s effects, Scott’s office said.

Here’s more from the governor’s office on the latest efforts to prepare roads for Hurricane Matthew:

• FDOT construction: All state projects on interstates, limited-access facilities, coastal and evacuation routes have been stopped. Contractors are securing equipment and removing all unnecessary barricades, signs and drums.

• Flooding: FDOT is monitoring flood-prone areas and will work with county emergency operations centers to coordinate any necessary response.

• Intracoastal bridges: In Palm Beach County, they will be locked down by 8 p.m. Wednesday. During lock-down, the bridge is closed, power turned off and the traffic arms may be removed.

Tri-Rail will suspend its service after the final trains run tonight because of Hurricane Matthew, Tri-Rail spokesperson Bonnie Arnold said Wednesday.

The commuter rail service also will be shut down Thursday and Friday, and possibly Saturday and Sunday, Arnold said.

The decision on whether to reopen the rail line this weekend will depend on the extent of damage along the corridor and to rail crossing arms, she added.

The crossing arms themselves can take “a good 12 hours to fix,” Arnold noted.

The last southbound train tonight leaves Tri-Rail’s Mangonia Park station at 8:40 p.m. The last northbound train arrives in Mangonia Park about 11:35 p.m.
