U. S. Customs and Border Protection

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is one of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s largest and most complex components, with a priority mission of keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the United States. It also has a responsibility for securing the border and facilitating lawful international trade and travel while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws and regulations, including immigration and drug laws.

In addition to India, the CBP Attaché’s area of responsibility includes Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and the Maldives.

The CBP office is located at the American Embassy in New Delhi, India and can be accessed through the visa gate.
