Immigration Customs Inspector Resume

Immigration officers have to be attentive in identifying immigration and customs law violations and take the necessary course of action. Immigration and customs inspectors examine visas, applications, passports and other necessary paperwork, for cargo for example. Any suspicion has to be followed with additional procedures, such as interviews, inspection of goods and personal belongings. Violations have to be addressed according with the country's regulations. They have to be available for any public enquiry and offer information to immigrants, travelers and shippers.


Immigration and customs inspectors are law enforcement agents and, consequently, they need to collaborate with other law enforcement institutions in order to correctly apply the law. Since this position is a public service position, the resume needs to conform to the requirements for public job application. A KSA needs to be filled with all the competencies and achievements that recommend the candidate. Education in the field of police science or military is a significant advantage.
