Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP)

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office issues and manages Customs Seals for individuals requiring access to CBP security areas in order to perform their job duties.  If your company or operation requires access to the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Security Areas at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) as defined in 19 CFR 122.181, please contact the CBP Security Seals Office at 650.877.4002 or email at sfocbpseals@cbp.dhs.gov

Do not attempt to make any appointments for application for a CBP Security Seal until your company has been identified and established with the local SFO CBP Seals Office. Your applications and appointments will be cancelled.

Effective Monday, December 5, 2016, the CBP Seals office will be integrated into the Airport’s appointment system.  Walk-Ins will no longer be accepted unless your badge has been lost or stolen, or you are returning additional documentation requested by the CBP Seals Office.  CBP will not have a standby process.  You must make an appointment to submit a Customs Seal application.

Please note, CBP Seal Applicants are no longer required to return to the CBP Seals Office to obtain a clearance memo.  All of the clearances will be updated in the Airport’s Identity Management System.  Individuals should report directly to the Security Access Office (SAO) for a badging/CBT appointment following the five (5) business day processing time for customs seal applications, unless you have been contacted by CBP or a member of the SAO management team.
