Airport Immigration Officer Resume Template

Airport Immigration officers can be found manning immigration counters in airports classed as ports of entry and are responsible for screening passengers disembarking from international airlines.  They check travel papers, identification and passports against a database of persons with valid passports and entry visas as well as against names of blacklisted persons or those wanted by Interpol, the FBI and Homeland Security.  They often have the discretion to detain suspicious passengers or those who can’t answer simple questions to confirm their identity and purpose of entering the country.
