Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport introduced faster “1-Stop” customs processing in 2013 for all international passengers arriving at its Terminal 5 without any checked baggage.
“1-Stop” informational signs in 6 languages have been posted in the corridor leading to the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) passport control area. The signs guide travelers to enter the designated lanes for expedited customs processing.
Eligible travelers will make “one-stop” at a booth with a CBP officer and then move to an “express corridor” that bypasses baggage claim and CBP Exit Control inspection areas. “1-Stop” CBP booths and express corridors are located on both sides of the passport control area in O’Hare’s International Terminal 5.
Nearly 14,500 passengers arrive at O’Hare’s International Terminal 5 daily and about 10 percent of these do not have any checked luggage.
