Airport Paperwork Change Could Save Millions

Airport Paperwork Change Could Save Millions

The feds will collect information about international passengers online rather than with a paper form.

"No, I don't have any security concerns because they're still gonna be recording who's coming in and who's going out based on the airline flights and their manifest."

Linda de Sosa at Houston's Woodlake Travel says the information collected has to match the passport and all passengers could lie about is where they'll stay.

"But they're not checking it anyway. Normally you would put the name of your hotel or something. But they don't call the hotel up and say 'is this person staying here?'"

De Sosa says the move will save millions on paperwork.

Upon hearing about customs dropping a required form for international visitors at Bush Intercontinental, you might think it's a security lapse. But a travel expert says it's just saving paperwork.
