The outage hit airports including JFK, San Francisco and Denver, even as worldwide travellers arrived from holiday travels on New Year's Day.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement saying, in part, "U.S. Customs and Border Protection experienced a temporary outage with its processing systems at various airports today beginning at 7:30 pm and ending approximately 9:30 pm". It gave no explanation for the disruption and said travelers were processed using alternative procedures.

According to CNN, the temporary outage lasted two hours and affected global travelers passing through several major airports, including New York's John F. Kennedy worldwide. Line is a few 100 deep.

Computers on immigration desk at various airports of the United States went down for about two hours on Monday, because of long lines for the people entering in the United States after year-end holidays.
