Why You Should Apply for Global Entry

Attention all travelers! Do you ever find yourself waiting in long airport security lines or customs lines after an international flight? Do you often feel frustrated by the immigration process at airports? Well, there is a solution to make your life easier: Global Entry.

What is Global Entry? Global Entry is a program run by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. This means you can skip the regular security line and breeze through immigration using an automated kiosk.

So why should you apply for Global Entry? Here are a few benefits that will make you want to apply right away:

1. Skip the long lines: With Global Entry, you will not have to wait in those long airport security or customs lines again. You can quickly clear the automated kiosk and be on your way.

2. Faster re-entry into the U.S.: If you travel internationally frequently, Global Entry can come in handy as it allows faster re-entry into the U.S. It saves you time and hassle when you have an important meeting to attend or just want to get home.

3. TSA PreCheck: Global Entry members are also eligible for TSA PreCheck, which allows you to go through security faster with shoes, belts, and light jackets still on. You also do not have to remove your laptop or liquids from your carry-on baggage.

So, how can you apply for Global Entry?

1. Start by visiting the Global Entry website: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs/global-entry

2. Click on the “Get Started” button and fill out the application form. The form includes personal information, employment details, travel history, and criminal history.

3. Pay the $100 application fee using a credit card.

4. Once your application is conditionally approved, schedule an interview with a Global Entry Enrollment Center. During the interview, officials will verify your documents, take your photo and fingerprints, and ask you questions about your travel history.

5. After your interview, you will receive your Global Entry card, which allows you to use the automated kiosks and TSA PreCheck lanes.
