Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance at airports for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. All participants are pre-screened and undergo a rigorous background check and an interview. Participants may enter the United States by using automated kiosks located at select airports. At airports, program participants proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their machine-readable passport or U.S. permanent resident card, place their fingertips on the scanner for fingerprint verification, and make a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.
The program is available to U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, Dutch citizens, South Korean citizens, Netherlands citizens who are enrolled in Privium, Canadian citizens and residents enrolled in NEXUS, and Mexican nationals. If you are a foreign national whose country has a bilateral trusted traveler arrangement with CBP, you may participate in the Global Entry program provided you are not entering the U.S. under certain visa categories.
