What is Global Entry?
Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers to expedite their entry into the United States.
Global Entry membership includes expedited entry into the United States at participating airports, as well as access to the TSA Pre✓® program.
What are the benefits of Global Entry?
Global Entry is a program of the U.S. government that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States.
Members of Global Entry can avoid long lines at customs by using self-service kiosks at select airports. Global Entry is open to U.S citizens, nationals and lawful permanent residents as well as citizens of Argentina, India, Colombia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Panama, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan and Mexico.
To apply for Global Entry, applicants must complete an online application and schedule an interview at a participating airport or U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office. During the interview, CBP officers will verify applicants’ identities and collect biographic information and fingerprints. Once approved for the program, members will be issued a Global Entry card which they can use to enter the United States through self-service kiosks located in select airports.
How do I sign up for Global Entry?
You must first complete an online application. Afterwards, you will schedule an interview at one of the Global Entry Enrollment Centers. You will need to bring your passport, license, and proof of residency. At the interview, a Customs and Border Protection officer will ask you questions about your travel history and conduct a background check. Once approved, you will be issued a Global Entry card, which allows you to use the Global Entry kiosks when entering the United States.
How much does Global Entry cost?
Global Entry costs $100 for five years. You can pay the fee with a credit card when you apply online. If you are conditionally approved, you will need to pay the fee when you attend your interview.
What is the Global Entry interview like?
Global Entry is a program that allows pre-screened, low-risk travelers to receive expedited screening when entering the United States. If you are a member of Global Entry, you can use the Global Entry kiosks at participating airports instead of going through the regular line at Customs and Border Protection.
The Global Entry interview is conducted by a Customs and Border Protection officer. The interview is relatively short, and you will be asked questions about your travel history and your reasons for wanting to participate in the Global Entry program. You will also be asked to show your passport and other form of identification.
What if I am not approved for Global Entry?
If you are not approved for Global Entry, you may still be eligible for TSA Pre✓®. Passengers who are not approved for Global Entry can apply for TSA Pre✓® by providing their known traveler number (KTN) when prompted during the flight reservation process, or in the “known traveler number” field when logging in to their airline’s website to check in online.
