Traveler Information

Are you traveling from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands or another country?

What You Should Know...

Bringing food and other items back from your travels could impact the health and safety of American agriculture and natural resources.  The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) works to keep potentially harmful pests and diseases that can hitchhike on food and other agricultural products out of the United States.  For example, travelers cannot bring in most fresh fruits and vegetables because they can carry plant pests or diseases.  Just one pest could devastate multiple agricultural industries.
