Naturally it was insane, but had a trick up my sleeve. Used the new mobile passport app and was able to get thru in under 5 minutes. We passed the entire immigration hall that was filled to the brim. The best part is its free, and you can use it as an individual or as a family. I paid for the 15 dollar pro version just so I could scan all the passports instead of entering them in manually. We were the only ones in the line, even quicker than the people with Global Entry next to us.
So I guess giving away this tip might not be the best way to keep that line so short. But I figured people that don't have Global Entry would appreciate knowing. The fact that you can use it for the kids without even having to pay anything is fantastic. https://mobilepassport.us/
Yup ... we have been using the free version since last year .... at BOS, I used it twice and both times we were the only family in the line ... and even at JFK, there were just 2-3 folks ahead of us, while Global Entry had 10-12 at least. Mobile Passport rocks!
Same! This is a great trick. Shhhh! LOL
