What is the "Port of Entry" where I was admitted to the United States?


Port of Entry (Part 3, Question 3.a1 on Form I-90) is the officially recognized location where you entered the United States. Everyone arriving at a Port of Entry (land, air or sea) is inspected by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers.
