WASHINGTON, DC - Doeane- en grensbeskerming (CBP) het vandag die aanvanklike uitbreiding van die Global Entry-program na vier bykomende lughawes aangekondig: Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport, Minneapolis, Minn. 5 Maart; Charlotte Douglas Internasionale Lughawe, Charlotte, NC 12 Maart; Internasionale lughawe Denver, Denver, Colo. 19 Maart en Phoenix Sky Harbor Internasionale Lughawe, Phoenix, Ariz. 26 Maart.

In Januarie onderteken president Obama 'n uitvoerende bevel waarin nuwe inisiatiewe aangekondig word om reis en toerisme in die Verenigde State te verhoog, terwyl hy werkskepping aanmoedig, insluitend om die loodsprogram Global Entry 'n permanente inisiatief te maak. Hierdie uitbreiding sal spoedige goedkeuring deur middel van die Global Entry-program beskikbaar maak op lughawens wat 97 persent van die internasionale reisigers bedien wat in die Verenigde State aankom.

Global Entry— now available at 24 U.S. international airports—allows pre-approved members a streamlined, automated alternative to regular passport processing lines. The program currently reduces average wait times by more than 70 percent, with more than 75 percent of travelers using Global Entry processed in less than five minutes.

At Global Entry kiosks, members insert their machine readable passport or lawful permanent resident card into a document reader, provide digital fingerprints for comparison with fingerprints on file, answer customs declaration questions on the kiosk’s touch-screen, and then present a transaction receipt to CBP officers before leaving the inspection area. Over the last three years, we have enrolled more than 270,000 members in Global Entry who have used the kiosks more than 1.9 million times.

Applications for enrollment in the Global Entry program are available through the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES). An applicant must complete and submit an online application through GOES and pay a non-refundable $100 application fee. CBP will review the applicant’s information, conduct a background investigation, and interview the applicant at a CBP enrollment center.

The program is available to U.S. citizens and U.S lawful permanent residents as well as pre-approved Mexican nationals. Citizens of the Netherlands may also apply under a special reciprocal arrangement that links Global Entry with the Dutch Privium program in Amsterdam. Canadian citizens and residents may participate in Global Entry through membership in the NEXUS program.
