Global Entry Program Expands to Four Additional Airports

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced this week an expansion of the Global Entry program to four additional airports:

Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport   –   March 5
Charlotte Douglas International Airport   –   March 12
Denver International Airport   –   March 19
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport   –   March 26

Global Entry allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers to receive expedited clearance upon arrival into the United States.  Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. To enroll in Global Entry, applicants must first file an application with CBP, and then submit to an interview and background check. There is a $100 non-refundable fee for the application. During the interview, the applicant’s fingerprints are captured and a digital photo is taken. Once an application is approved, it is good for five years.  Global Entry is open to U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and citizens of certain other countries.  Visit the Global Entry website for more information.
