Global Entry Program Designed to Speed Low-Risk International Travelers Through U.S. Airports


Certain travelers arriving in U.S. airports from abroad can avoid lines by using the Global Entry Program. Administered by the Department of Homeland Security agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection ("CBP"), Global Entry is a "trusted traveler" program designed to provide expedited clearance process for low-risk travelers, allowing CBP officers to focus on processing and inspecting other arriving passengers.

Global Entry is not available for domestic travel or for departures, only for entry into the United States from abroad.

The program is available to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents of the United States. The minimum age for participation is 14 years, but applicants 14 through 17 years of age must have the consent of a parent or legal guardian. Each family member must apply separately.
